Inspired energy education with impact

Green Galaxies makes it easy and exciting to teach school students about energy efficiency. Use your school’s own energy data to bring this innovative educational program to life.

Taking energy education further with real data

Green Galaxies provides curriculum-aligned lessons and learning experiences for both primary and secondary school students.

As part of your Green Galaxies subscription, energy meters will be installed at your school to record consumption and generation of energy. Use this live data to provide student learning experiences that lead to actionable insights.

You’ll have access to a comprehensive Teachers Toolkit, as well as a suite of interactive digital tools to bring science and data to life.
