The Enhancing Energy Literacy through Place-based Learning: The EYE Project is an NSF funded project to design, pilot, and evaluate 6th-grade energy literacy curricular materials for a program called Energy and Your Environment (EYE). EYE fosters place-based education by using local buildings, and particularly the school building itself, to enhance systems thinking about energy consumption and flow between buildings and Earth systems. The photo gallery below shows images from the Summer 2021 professional development with middle school teachers and the Fall 2021 Energy Trailer event with University of Missouri Architectural Studies students assisting via a service learning project.
