CURRICULUM



Through partnerships with local universities, nonprofits, government agencies and industry professionals, we’ve developed energy and minerals curriculum to help you get started.



Developed in collaboration with the Utah Science Teachers Association, the curriculum meets state SEEd standards and will help your students better understand the critical role of energy and minerals in their lives. It gives them the building blocks they need to develop problem-solving skills and gives you the resources to establish deeper understanding through hands-on activities and interactive learning material.

“Utah is one of the most energy-rich states and students will play a critical role in the development and use of these energies. These energy lessons provide teachers and their students with the education needed to utilize scientific thought and skills for the world that they will build.”Dawn Monson, executive director, Utah Science Teachers Association
