Smart Grid Lessons for Grades K-2

The new Smart Grid for Schools Construction set includes the Smart Grid System and four Smart Homes. The curriculum video and accompanying Teachers Edition and Student Edition handouts clearly teach how the electrical grid operates with standard meters and Smart Meters, and energy use in a home.

The Smart Grid Interactive Display consists of 7 large boxes containing full-sized appliances found in a home. It also has 3 tables that represent the electrical grid. There is separate curriculum for the rooms and for the tables. Also, lessons have been modified to fit different time allotments. The Interactive Display is currently unavailable.
