Bright Students

Welcome to Bright Students, a three-part energy education program for 4th-8th grade students. The program includes a pre-visit video, an interactive 45-60 minute classroom presentation, and a post-visit lesson. The classroom presentation explores energy sources, electricity generation, and energy efficiency. Several students will ride the Energy Bikes to power incandescent, fluorescent, and LED light bulbs, as well as common household appliances in order to learn about their energy usage. The presenters will finish with an in-depth look at energy conservation, efficiency, and how to make practical changes in their own homes. Each student receives an Energy Savings Kit - a drawstring backpack containing energy-saving LED light bulbs, a low-flow showerhead, a faucet aerator, an LED night light, and more! The presentation and related lessons are aligned with ADE standards. Bright Students is sponsored by Tucson Electric Power and UniSource Energy Services and offered free of charge to schools in the Tucson and Nogales/Kingman areas.
