Why is this program successful?
Because … Kids Get It
. When they are taught that our natural resources are not endless, they get it
. When they learn the importance of not polluting our earth, they get it
. When they learn about the value of alternative energies, like wind and solar power, they get it
. When they are shown how to conserve energy, they get it
, and they do it. When they learn about careers in the energy field, they get excited! The Kids Get It
program has materials for students to take home and share with their families, engaging the whole household in energy conservation.
What is the easiest way to reach children and families?
Through the schools, libraries, scout groups, after-school programs, and all adults that teach children.
Teachers value the workshop materials!
“All of the materials tied in perfectly with the Environmental Science unit included in the 8th grade curriculum within my school district. I was able to incorporate it very easily and the kids seemed to really enjoy it. Several students commented that the family activities were well received by their parents and that their parents were glad to see that the school is teaching their child how to conserve energy in an authentic way.”
