Kids Can Learn About Wind, Solar & Other Renewables

Kids Can Learn About Wind, Solar & Other Renewables

Children as young as 5 can earn a beautiful, free Clean Green Power Champion patch and a certificate for learning about clean energy through the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association’s self-guided Clean Green Power project.

Families, educators and youth groups can empower kids to do something about global warming and other problems associated with burning fossil fuels by taking the first step in learning about it and following up with a project of their own.

Part of the program involves interviewing someone using clean energy such as solar, wind or geothermal, with several options for site visits found at where a guide with all the project information can also be downloaded. The glossaries, links and other resources offered on the site and in the guide would be of value to adults and youth alike.

Older kids, 10 and up, can also gain a solid introduction to wind energy through the Wind Wisdom program, which involves completing a series of activities with a lot of room for choices.

Certificates can be downloaded. Girl Scouts completing either or both of these programs earn special Girl Scout patches. Patches are FREE for Massachusetts residents and $5.00 for others. The Clean Energy for a Clean Environment project is funded through a grant from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.
