Academic Education and Training Programs

Welcome to the Hydropower Academic Education and Training Programs section. This database of resources, lesson plans, and related materials is available to help educators learn and teach about hydropower. We want to make it easy for educators at all levels to quickly find curricula, activities, and other tools that will help energize students around a hydro-powered future and related concepts.

Education Levels

High School
As students enter high school, we can address more complicated concepts with hydro characteristics and generating electricity from hydropower. Additionally, these concepts can be addressed in different classes like physics, engineering, and environmental and earth sciences.
College
As students transition from high school to college, we can continue to address more complicated concepts with hydro characteristics and generating electricity from hydropower. Similar to high school, in college these concepts can be addressed in different classes like physics, engineering, and environmental and earth sciences. The concepts and resources listed here are appropriate for first and second year courses.
Graduate School
