One useful tool that youth can use to learn about energy is the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s website for kids, students and teachers. Use it to find helpful information that can help you learn the answers to such questions as:
- What exactly is energy?
- How is energy produced?
- What can I do to conserve energy?
- What is some of the historical background of energy?
- Additionally, you can find energy games, activities and much more!
