Students learn about the electric grid and how to manage energy use.
The ComEd Student Power Program provides teachers with additional resources to engage students in grades 3 through 12 in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as language arts and workplace skills. It is designed to help students learn more about electricity and the environment, as well as activities that can impact electricity use at home and at school. Students use smart meters to monitor energy use at home and share this knowledge with their families. Schools benefit from improved energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. ComEd Student Power is available to schools in areas served by smart meters.
