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

Integrating “Energy 101”

Grade Level:

If you're looking for a resource related to complex, multidisciplinary issues in the energy sector, look no further than Energy 101: Energy Technology & Policy. Energy 101 is free for students and teachers at public schools in the state of Texas through the Smart Energy Education program.

Several of the chapters from Energy 101 are linked as external resources to activities and project-based learning opportunities created as part of Watt Watchers of Texas. You can see all of these projects online under the High School Activities section of this website.

The following table includes the standards alignment of different sections of Energy 101, which you can use to address a specific standard or to determine the Texas-specific instructional objectives of integrating Energy 101.
