Energy is an interdisciplinary technology-supported middle school science inquiry curriculum. This curriculum focuses on the world's energy resources. Students use geospatial information technology (GIT) tools including GIS (My World GIS or Web GIS) and Google Earth, and inquiry-based lab activities to investigate energy sources, production, and consumption. Energy is aligned to national science and environmental education standards.

Energy has been field-tested in both urban and non-urban middle schools. Materials best used with the Firefox Web Browser and Google Earth version 5.2 or higher.

ELI is sponsored in part by the Lehigh Environmental Initiative. This material is based upon work supported by the Toyota USA Foundation. Video production supported in part by the Boeing Company.
