FSEC, along with other energy organizations, have taken the time to
designate numerous sets of curriculum materials for K-12 teachers and
schools. This web site lists a short description of these curriculum
materials, links to web sites, and information
on each unit. Care has been taken to insure that the
proper state standards that apply have been maintained.
Matters I is a solar energy science unit developed by
FSEC for elementary students in grades Kindergarten through
II is a solar energy science unit developed by FSEC
for elementary students in grades 3 through 5.
Matters III is FSEC's award winning solar energy science
unit for intermediate 6th through 8th grade teachers and

a hydrogen energy science unit developed by FSEC for elementary
students in grades 3rd through 5th. This unit focuses on basic information about hydrogen and introduces students to safety and the many uses of hydrogen.
Energy Hydrogen II is
a hydrogen energy science unit developed by FSEC for intermediate
school students in grades 6th through 8th. This unit builds on the knowledge from High Energy Hydrogen I but can be used seperate from the other units. New, is the more detailed look at hydrogen equipment, technologies, and applications.
Energy Hydrogen III is
a hydrogen energy science unit developed by FSEC for high school
students in grades 9th through 12th. Like High Energy Hydrogen II, this unit builds on High Energy Hydrogen I, but can also be used stand-alone. This high school level unit finishes up with a complete look at cutting-edge technologies such as fuel cells.
Fuel Matters, is
a compilation of individual activities for grades 6th through
8th that create an awareness of the potential of alternative
energy sources. The activities covered in Alternative Fuel
Matters are interdisciplinary, and could be used in several
