Volunteer opportunity: Energised Learning
Students learning

We're currently developing project-based learning activities that will inspire Tasmanian secondary students by actively engaging them in real-world and personally meaningful projects in their schools, under the mentorship of renewable energy professionals and tradespeople. Identified projects include biodigesters, using hot water systems like batteries to increase solar self-consumption, and taking an aquaponics system off-grid with solar and batteries.

We're looking for people with a background or interest in science education to help us link these projects to the Australian Curriculum, collate learning resources, and draft lesson plans.
