Work Begins on Developing Energy Curriculum For Schools

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Preliminary work has begun on a program that will teach Wyoming youngsters about energy development and natural resources in their state. The Legislature approved the energy and natural resources education program last winter. The Wyoming Afterschool Alliance got a $75,000 state grant two months ago to recommend how to further develop and fund the program. A report is due to the governor and state lawmakers next month.

The program will teach children at potentially all grade levels about Wyoming’s coal, oil, gas, uranium and renewable-energy industries, as well as about Wyoming’s natural resources. Schools will be able to use the program as they see fit — it will be up to educators whether to adopt the curriculum.
