solar energy education to inspire the next generation of clean energy leaders

 

At BEF, we believe education plays a critical role in solving the world’s most pressing energy challenges. Our Solar 4R SchoolsTM program delivers one of the most comprehensive K-12 renewable energy STEM education experiences in the nation. Through teacher training, science kits, teacher-generated activities and real-time access to energy generation data from 200+ solar systems nationwide, we are directly empowering the next generation of clean energy leaders. With the help of funding partners like you, our vision is to integrate renewable energy STEM education into every classroom in the nation.

In addition to directly supporting education and solar energy development, our school projects provide funding partners with an exceptional opportunity to engage students, school administrators, media, community members and other stakeholders. Through a range of engineering challenges, interactive kiosks and co-branded educational displays, our funding partners can authentically connect with communities of interest, creating an invaluable platform to share their broader sustainability story.
