Watt Watchers of Texas: Texas is Too Good To Waste™

Welcome to Watt Watchers of Texas

Texas is too good to waste.

Watt Watchers of Texas is a state-sponsored STEM program to help boost energy literacy for K-12 students and help schools save money by saving energy. Through the program, students, teachers, and families will have access to energy saving tips, activities, and lessons. Launched in 1985, Watt Watchers of Texas is an updated resource that builds upon the original beloved program and provides a modern look at energy, sustainability and conservation. So dive in and start exploring—because Texas is too good to waste!
Join Lil’ Tex and Ann, the Watt Watchers, as they track down the Wasters Gang. Along the way, you'll learn about saving energy, water, and all of the resources that make Texas a great place. Any time you see a light left on in an empty room, water running down the sidewalk, or recyclable plastic and metal in the trash, you'll know the Wasters Gang is nearby.
