We believe learning about energy should be fun, interactive, and accessible to anyone.

Energy can be complicated—to teach and to learn. But it's an issue that affects us all, no matter where we come from.
Understanding energy—how it works and how it can be used to tackle global issues—is essential for our lives.

That's why we started KidSun. Building on our experience both in the classroom and in the energy industry, we've created sets of hands-on, project, and inquiry-based lessons to get kids excited about energy, especially renewables and other new technologies.

Together with interactive, easy-to-use solar kits, our resources enable teachers like you to easily focus on STEM topics in a fun, friendly, real-world way—all while aligning with national standards. So you can help your students today prepare to be the global problem-solvers of tomorrow.

About The Lessons

KidSun Classroom K-5 is a set of interactive STEM challenges for elementary grades—designed and tested by teachers in a classroom setting. These STEM challenges can act as supplemental materials and can be incorporated into your existing curriculum. The challenges can also be used as ice breakers, team-building activities, after-school support, or to fill an entire lesson period. All of our challenges can be used in schools with or without solar arrays, and range in topics about energy and force to analyzing solar data.

KidSun K-5's challenges are aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards for their corresponding grades. In each lesson, you'll find a list of the correlations. Our lessons target a school's existing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math curriculum to provide supplemental material and instruction for various topics.
