about the



As our planet’s population continues to grow and energy needs increase it will become crucial that we teach students how to prepare for the energy needs of the future. This academy explores the history of energy development and use in the United States, current energy needs, and alternative energy sources for the future. Topics will include fossil fuels, solar power, wind power, nuclear energy, and alternative energy sources. Each day participants will engage with scientists, curators, engineers, and educators at the Smithsonian and other local venues. Participants will engage in hands-on content sessions that take them behind the scenes, and will learn of current research in sustainable energy resources.
