AK EnergySmart 

In 2011-2012, REAP and colleagues at the Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) at UAF designed an Alaska-specific energy efficiency curriculum called AK EnergySmart with funding from the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC). AK EnergySmart is a free curriculum resource that is owned by the State of Alaska to give Alaskan youth an understanding of the high economic and environmental costs of power generation and the importance of conserving energy at home and school. Through interdisciplinary units of study that investigate how energy is all around them, why we need energy, and how energy can be conserved, this K -12 curriculum gives students valuable insights that they can pass along to their families. All lessons are aligned to Alaska Grade Level Expectations (GLEs).

AK EnergySmart lessons, supplementary worksheets, and multi-media are available online at www.akenergysmart.org!
