After teaching energy content, a great way to share student knowledge gains, student work samples, and existing hands-on energy activities is to host an Energy Fair or community event where students become the teachers. Energy fairs can be filled with student-created exhibits, demonstrations, and activities, as well as community member exhibits, additional school content, and more! Be sure to use the energy kits you've already received at your Energy Fair!

The Energy Fair can be in person or virtual!  Work with students, faculty, parents, and community members to plan and implement an energy-focused STEM project in your school/community. Let NEED know the date, time, and location.

Share pictures and promote your event using the hashtag #EnergizingSTEM on social media. 

Schools who sign up to host an Energy Fair will receive an Energy Fair in a Box Kit to help host their event. You will ALSO receive a $200 Amazon e-gift card to assist with hosting your fair (materials, snacks, prizes, etc.). 

Applications are pulled on a weekly basis.  Any questions, please email Kimberly Swan at kswan@need.org
