Visualize a greener future, discover how we are getting there and design ideas that will make this future come true.
Discover how we impact the world around us with our actions. This activity will lead students through visioning what a greener future might look like, and take part researching and designing products and technologies for a sustainable future.
You could alternatively have students research a green energy project local in your community. Have students share their facts with the class.
Our activities provide a link to the core competencies of the curriculum. The activities engage students in sharing ideas and solutions, having fun learning and sharing with others through creative thinking and making.
In B.C., most of our electricity comes from hydroelectric dams. BC Hydro uses the power of falling water to create clean, reliable electricity. 97% of the electricity generated is clean energy. Learn more about our electricity in this video.
Conservation of electricity in B.C. is important because wasting energy also wastes our Earth’s resources. Young people can protect and care for our environment. We can empower them by helping them understand ways to save energy and in a fun, creative way, share this knowledge with others.
The following are some energy saving tips:
