Kids for Renewables

A four-part web series for kids to learn all about renewable energy

We can power our lives with 100 percent renewable energy from sources like the sun and the wind. Your kids can help!

Our Kids for Renewables project is a four-part web series designed for kids aged 6-10 years old to learn what renewable energy is, why it is important, and how we can do our part to help go 100 percent renewable.

Each week, children will be guided along the way with characters such as Emma Energy, Sally Solar and Wally Wind, who will break down topics such as how solar power works and why energy efficiency is important. Each animated lesson is accompanied by a step-by-step demonstration of a hands-on activity so that kids can learn about how renewable energy works in their own lives.

Lesson 1: Intro to energy with Emma Energy

Join Emma Energy as we begin our journey into the world of renewable energy! Kids will learn about what energy is, what renewables are and where they use energy everyday.

Lesson 2: Make it run with the sun!

Solar Sally teaches kids all about how we can power our lives with clean, near limitless energy from the sun. Afterwards, Katie will demonstrate how to turn a pizza box into a solar oven.

You and your kids can join us every week as we learn about a new topic in renewable energy with a new animated video and accompanying activity! New videos will be posted to this page every week.
