Curriculum

27% of our Nation’s energy use and 34% of our Greenhouse Gas emissions are attributed to transportation. 

Are you interested in spreading the word about alternative fuels in transportation?

The Coalition and the National Energy Foundation are proud to present an Alternative Fuel Curriculum. The curriculum covers grades 3-adult and a variety of topics from energy conservation to hydrogen fuel cells to vehicle technologies.

The Coalition will be hosting trainings in Cody, Lander, Cheyenne, and Jackson this spring! Limited stipends will be available to cover travel to these locations. Registration opens on Friday, January 30th!
