For a small state, Rhode Island is BIG in energy education. Hosting over six workshops a year for teachers
and three workshops for teams for teachers and students, NEED’s programming in Rhode Island covers
the science of energy, energy sources, wind and solar energy, and home and school building energy
efficiency. NEED participates in the Rhode Island conference of the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership
and provides resources to school districts working to reduce energy consumption in school buildings. With
the support of the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources and National Grid, hundreds of teachers
and students are reached each 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.
