K-12 SOLAR EDUCATION PROGRAM
Recognizing that educational barriers also exist in K-12 education, Solar Austin centers equity and inclusion practices within programs that introduce young students from systemically marginalized backgrounds to the STEM disciplines of solar energy. Who said learning can’t be fun?!
Understanding solar, renewable energy, and high-tech devices is important for future generations. Solar Austin teaches students about clean energy by hosting events and classes where students can learn about the fundamentals of solar energy by assembling solar car kits and testing their creations outside!
In order to expand access to solar-related education supplies and materials, the Solar Austin Education Program partners with local school districts to teach K-12 students the simple science and benefits of solar power.
