Can't start too young. In a program we helped develop for Laney College,
a special high-school class on "Physics for Building Science" summer is
provided to entice those kids to consider continuing their studies in
community college.

Anyone else have experience with developing curriculum at the high-school level?

Very nice! And I agree, start 'em young because they'll be dealing with bigger energy issues than we have and they'll need all the tools we can give them. Todd Rogers of Energy Training Solutions and Northeast Regional Director for NEED.org has a lot of experience bringing building science to elementary and high school students.

We've made hands-on props for use by high school students in New York. See some of the energy props at EnergyWright. The EnergyCycle is very popular for teaching the difference between efficiency and conservation. I posted instructions for building your own at Instructables.com.

Evan,

 

This is a great idea.   I am wondering if there are any programs like this up in the Puget Sound area?  I know quite a few people up here who would be very interested in volunteering time and expertise to a program like this. (including myself)
