Shell launches academy for renewable energy students


A subsidiary of Shell Energy North America, MP2 Energy, has launched a new educational website to help students improve their knowledge of renewable energy.

The website Energy Academy will serve as a resource for teachers as well.

The platform can be used as a flexible resource, filled with quizzes and complete lesson plans for classroom use, to help students understand more about energy concepts and the role renewable energy plays in their everyday lives.

Energy Academy is part of the MP2 Energy Solar for Schools programme and is aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Kindergarten through 5th Grade Science.

Kevin Boudreaux, vice president of Solar Operations for MP2 Energy, said: “Energy Academy is a much-needed, immersive academic experience that will help students explore and learn more about Earth’s renewable resources.

“We are proud to support this project, and we believe schools will greatly benefit from the rich materials developed in conjunction with Disco Learning Media and HandBuiltBrands.”
