Purchased for elementary, middle, and high schools
Types of kits geared to different grade levels
Children educated through kit usage
In Florida, the State Energy Office used SEP funds to provide K-12 public schools with energy education kits. There are three types of kits geared to different grade levels. All the kits are designed to develop teamwork, problem-solving abilities, and investigate environmental issues, and include items such as solar panels and electric motors, which provide opportunities for hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics skills. In 2019, the State Energy Office purchased 677 kits in a combination of elementary, middle, and high school kits valued at $495,000; 210 of these kits worth $153,840 have been provided to schools. An estimated 71,400 children around the state will be impacted by these kits.
