This year, students at Lakewood High School in Lakewood, Colo., are learning about energy policy and alternative sources of power from award-winning teacher Matthew Brown. In November, Brown was named the 2005 Renewable Energy Teacher of the Year by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which recognizes educators who make exemplary contributions to renewable energy education. Brown thinks this kind of curriculum will affect future consumers, inventors and policymakers. "Education is the easiest way to create change, and we obviously need to change the way we think about our energy future," he says. For information about the curriculum, contact NREL's Office of Education.
