TEC Partners with Redding Electric Utility for TK-8 Environmental Education

Project will bring STEM education focused on sustainability and energy efficiency to over 5000 students in Shasta County

California is working hard to build a pipeline of skilled energy workers, but career path barriers remain for students in disadvantaged (DAC), Hard to Reach (HTR), and rural communities. Access and equity challenges are complicated further by rapid changes in the energy sector and unstable conditions due to COVID-19. TEC is partnering with Redding Electric Utility (REU) to address these challenges by bringing our Energy is Everything curriculum to over 5,000 TK-8 students throughout Shasta County.

Energy is Everything is a TK-12th grade module-based curriculum that explores sustainability topics through the lens of energy and conservation. All lessons are aligned with education standards and aim to empower students to take actions in their communities to help create a more sustainable future. TEC’s Energy is Everything curriculum will teach REU’s TK-8 students about high-value energy career pathways, give them skills they will need for future career opportunities, and inspire them to live sustainably. Furthermore, TEC’s partnership with REU will provide high-quality professional development to boost educator confidence in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) topics.

“REU is excited to partner with TEC and expand our classroom outreach as well as offer distance learning options to local schools. As a publicly owned utility it is important to us that we give back to our customers and teach our local students about electrical safety and energy conservation while also encouraging them to explore careers in the STEM field,” says a Redding Electric Utility representative.

TEC looks forward to working with REU and connecting with educators and students throughout their service territory. Learn more about TEC’s education and workforce development offerings here.
