The smart grid employs advanced digital technology to upgrade the century-old electrical grid in the United States, resulting in a radical transformation of the ways that energy is used and consumed.
EDC has developed two three-lesson curriculum units that introduce high school students to the smart grid:
- Unit 1: Students learn about the smart grid and develop materials that will educate others in their community about the smart grid concept and its potential benefits.
- Unit 2: Students engage in career exploration and create job profiles for the smart grid industry.
