The mission of EnergySmart Education is to improve STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, prepare students for STEM careers, reduce energy usage among teachers, students, and schools, and reduce the environmental impacts from energy and water consumption.  The program provides teacher trainings, Green Boxes, school support, fieldtrips, and a speaker series for pre-K-12 educators with an emphasis on energy, energy efficiency and related topics.

Schools and Organizations
Over half of the participating schools are designated as Title I, in which more than 50% of the campus student population is eligible for the federal Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) program, a reliable indicator of poverty. Additionally, among the schools served in the current year by the EnergySmart program, 10 percent of the student population at the schools served are designated as Limited English Proficiency.

Professional Development

Each summer a 3 day STEM-based teacher training is held in both Reno and Las Vegas.

Public Service Announcement Competitions

Each year, EnergySmart Education along with the Governors Office of Energy, Southwest Gas, NV Energy, and Green Chips hosts a Energy focused PSA competition.

Curriculum and Resources

Green Boxes are offered free of charge for classroom implentation.

Home Energy

Because we know students take home what they learn at school, we've developed tools to enhance energy education at home.
