Conservation Station: Creating a More Resourceful World aims to create a nationwide dialogue on the importance of students’ understanding of current and future energy needs, resource utilization and conservation. The program materials dive into the relationship between energy and water and how innovative technologies are working to conserve both resources through the core pillars of resourcefulness: effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability.
Resourcefulness: An Introduction to the energy-water nexus is an interactive STEM application authored by Dr. Michael E. Webber at The University of Texas at Austin that teaches key concepts about water and energy for K-12 classrooms, colleges, industry, and the general public. The goal of this free app is to improve water and energy literacy, encourage conservation, and inspire the next generation of innovators.
