EcoNexis: Educational materials on sustainable energy
For Enexis’s EcoNexis house DST developed educational materials for high school students, on sustainable energy. Enexis uses this house to demonstrate current techniques for renewable energy. Using assignments and iPads visiting students can tour the house in groups or independently to gather information.
DST developed the materials in close cooperation with EcoNexis house users and regional schools. Teachers receive their teacher’s guide and a wall poster of the house in advance so they can use them to prepare their visit in class with their students. Students use their assignments during their visit to process input for a presentation on sustainable energy they will later give at their school, helped by teachers and house guides. Like other educational projects this one closely fits Enexis’s community policy to encourage young people to grow more aware of the future of society’s energy needs and usage.
