The SunPower Foundation and One Million Lights, a Palo Alto-based nonprofit that provides solar lighting to rural communities around the world, have just teamed up to launch One Million Students, a solar energy education program for K-12 schools. 

“The program provides educators with grade-appropriate curriculum structured to increase student understanding of how solar works and how it is being applied to generate clean, renewable energy in locations around the world.”

How I wish such a program existed when I was a kid!!

“The One Million Students program features three, one-hour lesson plans which highlight real-life case studies on solar technology use worldwide along with interactive learning tools including solar-powered LED lights and solar electricity testing kits. Teachers can choose curriculum based on specific education levels: elementary school, middle school or high school. Plans can be integrated into existing environmental studies, math and science courses, and delivered by SunPower or One Million Lights representatives.”
