Energy-focused education

EnlightenSC is an energy education program developed by educators for the consumer-owned electric cooperatives in South Carolina. The co-ops created EnlightenSC as a way to help teachers better access energy-related information and activities for their classrooms, resources designed to get young people excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics: the STEM subjects.  This website is a clearinghouse of lessons and activities, compiled from resources across the country, and correlated to S.C. science education standards for each grade level. The program has expanded to include a summer graduate courses for educators at no charge. EnlightenSC also sponsors the Children's Book Challenge – a competition for S.C. students.
