The Student Energy Program, also known as S.T.E.P.; is a sustainable learning project. Students engage with sustainable innovation and solar energy in an approximately 2-month curriculum. They completely immerse themselves in this hugely current and important world of sustainable technology! In the S.T.E.P. project, students build their own Ecoplant. A highly innovative suntracing solar system.
The highlight is of course when the Ecoplant is placed by the students in the most effective location of the school grounds. The Ecoplant is guaranteed to act as the meeting place of the school grounds. It will also provide options for charging smart phones, electric bikes and cars, camera surveillance, lighting and a Wi-Fi point. The Student Energy Program and the Ecoplant immediately give your school a sustainable stamp of approval. Of course, the project brings a lot of media attention!
- The student comes into contact with different companies, in line the future work field;
- The Student Energy Program connects to many core objectives and optional subjects from secondary education and fits seamlessly into the continuous learning line;
- The student comes into contact with many facets within innovative technology, from installation work, steel and construction work to graphic design;
- The S.T.E.P. is theoretically secured with hands-on learning materials written by teachers.
Project ready after the placement? No! The Ecoplant brings a lot of opportunities within education. The ideal tool in STEP subjects. Also, the Ecoplant can be built up repeatably. The teaching material is also used in a circular way in education.
From research and evaluations of already implemented projects, the Student Energy program was rated an average of 8. A point for improvement that came up widely was the question of theoretical assurance.
Ecoplant did not wait and started right away! Together with the Dutch company MK-Educatie, several teachers and schools a connection in education has been sought and a hands-on workbook was written. Sustainable innovation and solar energy.
How cool is that:
- An Ecoplant at your schoolyard
- Realized with the efforts of your own students
- Where education and business come very close together
- Supported with a practical teaching program
Sustainability and education should go hand in hand. S.T.E.P brings sustainable technology education very close in a trendy way. S.T.E.P is of course just a really cool sustainable education program and extremely hands-on!
The Student Energy Program was written for and by teachers; the collaboration with education specialist MK-Education also emphasizes this. By collaborating with teachers from the field, the project fits seamlessly with the students’ curriculum.
Did You know that S.T.E.P. was already rated 8 in the first evaluations?
The world urgently needs engineers with ‘green-skills’. Indeed, sustainability and green energy are only becoming more important. Ecoplant therefore aims to ‘plant’ a seed about this transition in young people now. Within the sustainable lesson program, pupils learn all about the energy transition.
Would you like to work in a team to build the Ecoplant within a sustainable teaching program? A device almost 4 metres high and weighing 350 kilograms? If so, that’s super cool! The world is going to need people who understand green energy and sustainable transition a lot in the future. The Ecoplant is a rotating solar plant that rotates with the sun. Early in the morning, the Ecoplant faces east and during the day it rotates with the sun to the west. Just like a flower, beautiful energy!
Is your school also starting the sustainable teaching program S.T.E.P?
Our team is ready for it!
