ABOUT THE ENERGY CLIMATE ACTION KIT

Empower your students to tackle climate change issues while learning important digital skills with the new Energy Climate Action Kit. Just like the popular Land Climate Action Kit, the Energy kit will help educators inspire their students to recognize and address climate change issues related to sustainable energy!
Students will explore the United Nations Sustainable Development goals while making connections between them and the climate change issues we're facing. After learning the background and context of each issue, students will design and prototype a solution using the kit components and a BBC micro:bit.
Grade Level: 4-12
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
