Thank you for taking the time to educate your students about energy efficiency. As we all know, times are uncertain in the world right now. NTC was able to visit some schools this year, but other schools had their scheduled performances postponed due to the ongoing health crisis.
We have created this digital package of educational materials for distance learning. Accessing the materials is easy and they integrate seamlessly with national and regional educational standards, as well as classroom curricula. And even though we couldn’t engage every student face-to-face, we still want Duke Energy’s customers (and teachers) to get a free energy efficiency kit, as well as a chance to win some money. We are happy to continue running this program and hope that the free kits can be a helpful resource.
This digital package contains:
- Energy Endgame educational video
- Digital games and activities
- Information on the My Energy Kit Challenge
- Information on the My Energy Kit Challenge cash rewards available for schools and families
- Kilowatt Krush app download
After you have reviewed the materials, simply copy and paste the link below into an email for your students. Teachers, don’t forget – if you haven’t already, request your kit today.
My Energy Kit Challenge
The My Energy Kit Challenge has a goal to save 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy during the 2019-20 school year. To reach this goal, staff and families at participating schools can request a FREE Energy Kit to save energy in their homes. Every unique request for the FREE Energy Kit helps your school win cash rewards ranging from $250-$2,500, and gives each family a chance to win $1,000. And YES, this program is still going!
The video explores the following four main educational concepts:
- How to measure energy use
- How energy is wasted
- What renewable resources are
- How to conserve energy
The concepts are broken up into simple, easy-to-understand sections. Not only will this video give your students important background information on the science of energy and electricity, it will also let them know how we can all form positive habits and behaviors in order to become better environmental stewards.
These fun and educational activities and games reinforce the concepts learned in the video.
- Digital games
- Interactive story e-book
- Student Playbook
- Teacher Guide
Kilowatt Krush is a FREE educational app from Duke Energy that teaches smart energy use and conservation through an engaging arcade of action-packed, energy-themed games.
Download Kilowatt Krush at your favorite app store. And make sure to request your free energy efficiency kit to get your special code to unlock ALL the games.
We know how important educational standards are to your teaching methods. Because of that, we have included the educational standards covered by each of this digital package’s educational concepts. These science and language arts standards are critical to the high-quality education your students deserve.
