Engage your students in a virtual game that can be played at home or at school. Cool Choices, is a fun, easy, and social way to engage your students in sustainability efforts. It takes your students just a few minutes each day to document sustainable actions for points!
Ways to Play:

Classroom Game - Recommended for grades 4 to 8. Teachers register with their email address and poll class each day to count how many did the action on the card. We encourage classrooms to recruit non-classroom school staff and parents to play on their teams too!
Individual Game - Recommended for high school. Each student registers with an individual email address and forms a team of 5-8 people. Each player is responsible for playing cards daily to earn points for their team. As with the classroom game, we encourage students to recruit school staff and family to play along.

STEMhero E-learning Platform
Whether learning in class or at home, engaging your students with STEMhero gives them the knowledge and skills to be a part of the energy solution. Through an online curriculum and dashboard, your students will evaluate their household’s electricity, natural gas, and water consumption to develop behavior or technology changes that can be made to reduce use. Also, invite KEEP "into" your classroom for a kick-off or wrap-up celebration or arrange for a local expert or STEM role model to speak in your class.
