K-12 Energy Education

The interdisciplinary topic of energy resources can be embedded throughout K-12 curriculum. Whether you are teaching fourth graders the history of Wyoming or sophomores the laws of physics, energy resource studies can serve as a fascinating, real-world topic to engage students. These energy lesson plans support your efforts to integrate energy topics into your class in any subject area.

Energy Literacy Education

In 2013, the School of Energy Resources partnered with ExxonMobil to advance energy literacy education in Wyoming. Our mission is to connect energy information and 21st-century career skills to position students for competitive success in higher education and the energy workforce.

The Energy and Society curriculum is currently under review.
