Here’s what teachers are saying about Energy Revealed.

"Our participation in this challenge deepened students’ knowledge on energy conservation, global warming and climate change. It was very effective in helping them take a personal interest in energy conservation."

“One of the things we learned from this is that when the kids spoke up and said 'why do we have all the lights?', [the rule] got changed. So there’s power in using our voice and saying ‘ why are we doing this?’ I understand the COVID protocols but can we still be safe but have the lights off and that was a really great learning experience for us.” … “The kids realized that they can use their voice and actions to bring about change.”
