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!

Student Patrols

The Student Patrol Program is the heart of the Watt Watchers of Texas. Your students will join Lil’ Tex and Ann as official Watt Watchers, helping to save Texas by rounding up the Wasters Gang.


We've put together dozens of activities centered around conserving energy, food, water, and materials that are so much fun, your students won’t even realize how much they’re learning. (Plus, the activities are all TEKS-aligned!)

Teacher Resources

Everything you need to implement a successful Watt Watchers of Texas program at your school is collected here for you: forms, name tags, door hangers, even letters so share with your administrators to help ensure their support.
