Green Energy Lesson Plans

UCONN partners with local teachers every year through the GK-12 and Joule Fellows Programs. Teachers work alongside engineers to develop green energy lesson plans for a variety of grade levels and subject areas. Please feel free to email us your green energy lesson plans so we can continue growing this site as a resource for teachers. Click on a lesson to view a pdf of the lesson plan.
