Nikki’s Energy Assignment

Energy Conservation

This 15-minute show presents an online video lesson in energy conservation for grades K-5. Students learn about energy efficiency with the help of Nikki Neutron, a superhero for the energy-saving Eco Guardians. It’s Nikki Neutron’s turn to deliver the donuts to the weekly meeting in the conference room at the back of the Eco Guardians headquarters. She also has to deliver a presentation on energy efficiency, but she was so busy getting the donuts, she had no time to prepare! As she goes on her jelly-donut journey, she runs into various employees who give the information about energy, conservation and renewable resources. She finally arrives at the meeting, donuts in hand. Everyone is overjoyed until it’s time for the presentation. Has Nikki learned enough to impress the boss? Stay tuned!

Students and teachers will also have access an exclusive e-learning package that includes games, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom that reinforce concepts from the show. Additionally, the program challenges your students (and staff) to save energy at home by providing Energy Kits that contain items to conserve electricity and water.
