Funded by grants from the Nebraska Environmental Trust (NET) and the Facebook Community Action Grants Program, we have awarded, to date, 125 NEED (National Energy Education Development) Solar Energy Kits to K-12 schools all throughout our state. This Nebraska Solar Schools project would not have been possible without the generous support of NET, Facebook, and individual contributors.
Grant funding through the Nebraska Environmental Trust has ended. Sufficient funds remain in the Facebook grant for an additional ten kits, which will be delivered after the 2022-2023 academic year begins.
We want to thank the many teachers, principals and superintendents who have been or continue to be involved in the NEED Solar Energy Kits Project, providing their students with enriching STEM curriculum materials and activities to help prepare them for a renewable energy future.
