About

EnlightenSC is an energy education program developed by educators for the consumer-owned electric cooperatives in South Carolina. The co-ops created EnlightenSC as a way to help teachers better access energy-related information and activities for their classrooms, resources designed to get young people excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics: the so-called STEM subjects.  This website is a clearinghouse of lessons and activities, compiled from resources across the country, and correlated to S.C. science education standards for each grade level. The program has expanded to include Saturday workshops and summer graduate courses for educators at no charge. EnlightenSC also sponsors the SC 4H Engineering Challenge – a competition for S.C. students.
