Helping Teachers Teach about Energy - UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The Fabulous Resources for Energy Education (FREE) program was developed in response to the needs of Iowa’s educators. FREE provides materials and curriculum resources to help people better understand the choices and consequences related to energy production and use.
Our FREE materials provide the knowledge and motivation you need to become an energy aficionado – an enthusiastic and knowledgeable energy educator! Educators can't teach and students don't learn with empty hands. FREE helps you fill those hands with materials that make learning about energy fun and exciting!
What is available? You'll find lesson plans and activities for the classroom that are adaptable for various groups. We even offer materials to build things like mini solar cars and mini wind turbines, free downloads of energy games, and links to videos and other resources to support energy education. Iowa educators can borrow materials through our FREE Loan Program. Anyone can purchase our solar car and wind turbine kits with a credit card at the FREE Store. FREE is sponsored on campus by the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences, the Technology Department, and UNI STEM.
