We take an active role in educating British Columbia’s next generation about energy solutions, safety and conservation as part of their daily lives. Delivered together with teachers, FortisBC employee volunteers and the BC Lions, our classroom-ready programs help teach students from kindergarten to high school to be smart about energy.
Energy Leaders provides BC teachers with curriculum-connected lesson plans and resources for kindergarten to grade 12 students. Developed by teachers for teachers, it aligns with BC’s new curriculum:
- inquiry based
- hands-on learning
- First Peoples’ principles of learning
- core competencies
- teaching strategies and routines
Lessons touch on social studies, science and language arts, telling the BC energy story and helping students develop energy literacy: where natural gas and electricity come from, how to conserve it and how to be safe around it.
