Educators

We invite you to be a part of an exciting new initiative called One Million Students.  

This program provides hands-on, engaging and ready-made lessons on environmental studies for K-12 students. We are very excited to reach out to schools to encourage environmental education with an emphasis on solar. Each day we face new and difficult decisions regarding environmental issues; the next generation will face even more complicated decisions as the world’s population increases and natural resources diminish. One Million Students Program brings a global perspective and supports the following goals:

  • Educate and inspire students to make smart energy choices

  • Help students understand the impact of solar lighting on people living without electricity

  • Educate students about solar technology and its diverse application

What’s in it for you?

  • Ready-made lesson plans that could fit into an existing curriculum for science, environmental science or social science

  • Guest teachers who conduct the lesson for you

  • Inspired and engaged students!

There are 1.3 billion people in this world who do not have access to clean energy.  One Million Lights’ mission is to improve the daily lives of children and adults around the world by replacing dangerous and polluting kerosene lamps through the distribution of safe, rechargeable solar lights. One Million Students brings into the classrooms within our own community engaging exercises in solar energy and inspiring stories about solar energy’s global applications.
