Empower Your School to Create a Sustainable Future
The Solar Schools program combines educational resources and energy monitoring products, supporting students and schools to use real energy data to create change.
Explore Energy Efficiency With Our Complete Curriculum
Solar Schools is practical, engaging and aligned with the Australian Curriculum, from foundation right through to senior secondary.
The program brings data and science to life through comprehensive teaching resources, as well we a suite of interactive tools and applications. Unit plans, lesson plans and student activities are all included, across a range of learning areas.
Educational experiences are based on your school's energy data, which is monitored and recorded in real time.
We believe we all need to work together to protect our planet and that local changes in schools and communities can add up to create global impact.
Ignite Learning with Real-World Experiences
Solar Schools includes an entire ecosystem of resources and tools, designed to make teaching about energy use easier and more engaging than ever before.
Underpinning the program is sophisticated technology that monitors and analyses a school's energy use, as well as any energy generated by solar panels.
This data enhances classroom learning across all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning areas. Even better, students can design strategies to change energy use in the school and measure the effectiveness of their ideas.
Armed with knowledge and enthusiasm, Solar Schools students are ready to start making a difference.
Make the invisible visible
When you sign up to Green Galaxies, you unlock a rich ecosystem of learning resources. Together, these resources turn invisible concepts, like energy, into tangible insights.
Take Action With
An important part of the Solar Schools program is the energy meters that will be installed at your school. We'll coordinate the installation process to make sure you get the right meters in the right place.
Knowledge is power. Your energy data is easy to analyse using your school's own Demand Management mobile app. With this information on hand, you can manage and reduce energy consumption to save thousands of dollars every year on utilities bills.
