Fourth-grade students at Voyager Elementary and sixth-grade students at Highlander Way Middle School recently learned about energy efficiency and natural resources with an interactive presentation by Consumers Energy and DTE Energy. The THINK! ENERGY program is an initiative aimed at increasing energy literacy for students in grades fourth through sixth while increasing the energy efficiency of homes throughout Michigan. The program includes a 60-minute in-school presentation focusing on renewable and nonrenewable energy resources, electrical circuits and energy efficiency, including simple behaviors and technologies that will help increase the efficiency of our homes and schools. 

DTE Energy and Consumers Energy provided each student and teacher with a take-home kit containing devices to improve energy efficiency at home, including a high-efficiency showerhead and faucet aerator, two LED light bulbs and an LED nightlight. Teachers received additional educational activities and posters to reinforce academic standards in science, social studies and mathematics. 

The THINK! ENERGY program is in its third year and is being delivered to over 12,000 students and teachers in 2016. The program is sponsored by Consumers Energy, DTE Energy, the Michigan Department of Education and National Energy Foundation.
