Energy Efficiency: An Experiential-Based Energy Unit for Youth Ages 13-18
Poorman, Myken D.; Webster, Nicole
Journal of Extension, v48 n2 Article 2TOT7 Apr 2010
Not all 16 year olds can buy hybrid cars to help save gas emissions, but they can learn new, easy ways to save energy. Youth are more likely to develop a greater sense of positive impact on the environment if they learn easy and creative ways to use energy more efficiently at a young age. Through the use of practical applications, youth can begin to make a difference in our environment. By implementing energy-related materials, programs like 4-H can teach communities the importance of saving energy. If youth are educated on ways to be energy conscious, they will teach others.
