Glass, Lynn W., Ed.
Eight examples of innovative and outstanding energy education programs are described. These programs were selected using state criteria and at least four independent reviewers. While Project Synthesis offered a desired state, these examples of excellence provided views of what is already a reality. The goals of an exemplary science program are provided along with the criteria for excellence. The programs described are: (1) "Pathways to the Future"; (2) "The Best of Energy--$1,000,000 Energy Challenge"; (3) "The Energy Management Center"; (4) "Energy Education at Houston's Outdoor Education Center"; (5) "The Energy Studies Center: Providing Skills For The Future"; (6) "Poss's Energy Posse"; (7) "Toward an Energy Consciousness"; and (8) "Energy Studies and Physical Sciences." Presented is a critique on excellence in teaching energy education. (KR)
