about watts next
Watts Next is designed to deliver energy savings to your school while educating students about energy and providing multiple opportunities for STEM-based projects in the process.
Hands-on, interactive lessons are delivered by a team of energy experts who make learning about energy fun. Students analyse baseline data to determine how your school consumes energy and where the opportunities are to become more energy efficient.
Programs offered by our team include:
- Class Term Program – an eight-week program for a dedicated class of students that provides knowledge, support, and tools to identify energy saving opportunities and create strategies for change. A shortened 5 week course suited to term 4 is also available.
- Know Your Solar – technical support from our solar experts to assess the school’s solar system performance, as well as a workshop for teachers on how to integrate solar energy education and data into lesson plans.
- Teacher Workshops – workshops that address a variety of energy and sustainability topics to help teachers integrate these important themes into the classroom.
The value of our programs goes well beyond energy savings; students discover the impact that our current energy system is having on the environment and what they can do – at school and at home – to reduce their impact.
