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



NEED programs are strong in Massachusetts thanks to the support of the Cape Light Compact, NSTAR, Eversource, and Dominion. The Compact loans NEED kits and curriculum to classrooms, provides teacher training, and hosts many community
education events throughout the year. 


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.
