Florida Solar Energy Center


FSEC dedicates substantial effort to the development of educational resources for the teachers of our children. We do this out of the simple belief that clean and efficient energy resources are key to our future generation's ability to achieve a safe and substantial environment. In order to educate teachers and students about renewable energy technologies, the Florida Solar Energy Center has developed several environment and energy curricula for use by teachers. The curricula units list and adhere to Florida's Sunshine State Education Standards. Alsom the education department offers a number of educational tours that give students the ability to interact with staff researchers and see cutting edge science research. Finally, a number of science-related education events are held each year. These events encourage students to use their knowledge and creativity to solve energy problems.
