e3smart: Students Learn, Families Save

Families with students in schools served by AEP Ohio are learning how to save energy and money at home if their children are participating in e3smartSM. Now, in its eighth year, this energy efficiency education program is expected to engage up to 25,000 students in grades 4 through 12. The e3smart curriculum as developed by the Ohio Energy Project meets Ohio and National Science Standards and was recognized as an Outstanding Energy Education Project by the Ohio EPA in 2008.

How Can A School In My Community Apply

A school must be located in the AEP Ohio service territory to be eligible to participate in e3smart. Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, AEP Ohio and Columbus Gas of Ohio are co-sponsoring the program where their service areas overlap. To apply for the current school year, complete the application, and submit as instructed. For more information, contact Michael Lascola (mtlascola@aep.com), AEP Ohio education and training coordinator for the Energy Efficiency/Demand Response team.

See What Teachers Are Saying About e3smart

"The notebook is fabulous!!! Every year it gets better and better! The examples are great. The sample data sheets make it easy to teacher if there is ever a question, and the ability to modify and pick certain parts of each lesson is also important when I teach three different levels of biology. Keep up the good work. Your revisions to the curriculum have made it easy to teach!" Bexley High School Teacher

"The lessons included from the workshops are student-centered, Ohio State Standards aligned, and use a format that uniformly reinforces the scientific method. I teach 7-12, so a common mistake is to assume that the upper level juniors and seniors automatically will use the tools of a good scientist like asking questions, following experimental procedures, analyzing and interpreting data, and being able to argue from evidence to make a valid conclusion. So, these guided worksheets take out the rote, and often boring, review of the scientific method but cleverly sneak it in for every student investigative write-up. Independent/ dependent variables –hurray they are included not as definitions but as actions in the investigations. Thank you!" Mansfield Integrated Learning Center Teacher

"I'm very excited about having the cd with all the materials included. It is so helpful to have that resource, especially when I go back to my building and want to share information with my colleagues about taking this class. We have a 5th grade science PLC that I could show this to. It will also be helpful if I want to show a page on my whiteboard to the students using my projector. The students will be excited to take materials home to teach their parents what they've been learning in class. They will feel empowered to help make a contribution to the family. Providing them with knowledge is important, but having the materials to make a difference will have a huge impact. I've already recycled two refrigerators this year for the rebates. Now I'm going to check and see if the new refrigerator that I bought in June has the energy star symbol on the label. Thanks again for the great class!" Park Street Intermediate School Teacher

"As I walked into the meeting, I had no idea what to expect. The information I obtained from the website seemed almost too good to be true because I had never attended a workshop in which so many materials were distributed to those who participated. To my delight, a very personable group of ladies introduced themselves to our class and immediately made us feel at ease about the day's activities. They stressed how all of the activities and information were connected to the new and old standards and then the energy activities began. We immediately began learning ways to introduce the types of energy and how energy transforms from one form to another. We were having fun and learning in the same manner that I want my students to learn. We participated in practical activities that could apply to any topic and not just energy. After lunch, we were guided through the lessons on energy that we would perform in our classes and the tools we would use in each lesson. We were able to walk through the room and use the tools the instructors discussed throughout the day which help develop a sense of how we were going to apply the tools. Overall, the day was a very productive and enjoyable day. I am looking forward to using the ideas and materials in my classroom. I am sure my students will be as excited about the concepts and activities as I am." Lisbon Exempted Village School Teacher
