About Smart Grid for Schools
Illinois State University has designed and implemented a Smart Grid for Schools program, which offers schools the opportunity to learn about the new Smart Grid technology currently being rolled out by the utilities companies in your area. This program engages students, kindergarten-12th grade, with Smart Grid in a fun, hands-on way and incorporates Next Generation Science Standards.
