Power engineering experts and educators from the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE) and the Information Trust Institute (ITI) have developed these interactive lessons for the NSF, DOE, and DHS funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) project to help teachers and students learn about the system that delivers electricity and the challenges for the future. These instructional resources are designed for students in middle and high school. They are classroom-ready and illustrate important concepts in the science of electricity and the power grid as well as mathematics.
