Itron has partnered with Disco Learning Media to improve students’ knowledge on water and energy management and the relationship between the two resources.

Lessons will be based on the web app Resourcefulness: An Introduction to the Energy-Water Nexus authored by energy expert and professor Dr Michael E. Webber.

The platform will offer free, educational standards-aligned videos, interactives and lesson plans on water and energy to high school students.

The aim is to improve water and energy literacy, encourage conservation, and inspire the next generation of innovators.

Itron and GPB Education will host Resourcefulness on PBS LearningMedia, streamed by the Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Callie Bendickson, manager of corporate social responsibility for Itron, said:  “We’re thrilled to work with Georgia Public Broadcasting Education and Disco on this expansion of the Resourcefulness curriculum.

“GPB is a nationally recognised leader in providing high quality, educational content for public media, and this project will help bring Resourcefulness to more classrooms across the country.”

“Through PBS LearningMedia, GPB and PBS are able to offer free, standards-aligned videos, interactives, lesson plans and more for teachers and students,” said Laura Evans, director of education for Georgia Public Broadcasting, “Our collaboration with Itron and Disco Learning Media allows us to provide even more high-quality resources that address STEM concepts.”
