NEED is adding new energy workshops all the time. Want to attend? Check out our calendar to find a workshop near you!



The PECO Energizing Education Program is “project-based,” combining a five-week classroom program with a school energy audit completed by students, a field trip to a PECO power station, a community project, and an exciting opportunity for students to present their energy projects at a year-end community event. Designed and implemented by PECO, The Franklin Institute, and NEED, the program is supported by a grant from PECO and the Exelon Foundation. 

Teachers can access NEED curriculum online. As resources are available, teacher workshops and
hands-on kits are available. Individual state curriculum correlations are available here.
