The key to solving Alaska’s domestic energy problems and creating a sustainable future is educating Alaskans about where our energy comes from and how we use it. Energy, science and math literacy in our youth is a critical first step to building an informed populace and preparing Alaska’s residents for the jobs of tomorrow. That’s why REAP is working to create the Alaska Network for Energy Education (ANEE) to bring a common thread to K-12, post-secondary, and career and technical energy education in Alaska.

The goal of the ANEE initiative is to build a comprehensive energy education network in Alaska that will create an inventory of Alaska’s energy education programs and provide a way for both education providers and consumers to see and understand what is available in the state. Eventually, REAP envisions that ANEE will be the umbrella that unites all of our existing clean energy education programs and allows us to bring complementary programs to fruition.

REAP’s energy education programs are supported by state and federal agencies, our Tour Green partners, and individual donors around Alaska.
