Tucson Electric Power is working to expand educational opportunities in Southern Arizona. Through partnerships with schools, nonprofit groups and other community organizations, TEP is helping teachers deliver compelling lessons, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. We’re also preparing students for opportunities in the energy industry.
This interactive, multimedia presentation is aligned with state standards and designed to teach high school students about the science and history of renewable energy.
