Energy Education Program

NOPEC is partnering with the Ohio Energy Project for the seventh consecutive year to bring STEM education to Ohio schools.

2023 - 2024 STEM Education Program for Ohio Students

NOPEC has partnered again with Ohio Energy Project (OEP) to help energize in-person and virtual classrooms this school year with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Design Challenges meant to spark curiosity about energy and promote creative problem solving and critical thinking. These challenges, which required students to experiment with various materials, not only taught students about wind energy but also helped students think about where energy comes from and how to use energy more efficiently.  

Over 4,000 students from a total of 43 Ohio schools are participating in the program this school year which, thanks to NOPEC’s sponsorship, was offered at no-cost to participating schools in NOPEC member communities. Students in grades 7 – 12 were tasked with designing and engineering unique wind turbine blades and then testing their design to see how much energy they created and how efficient their blades were at creating energy. Students in grades 3 – 6 participated in the MacGyver Windmill Lift project that challenged students to build, test, and improve upon a windmill, and use that energy to lift weights and calculate force.
