Bringing Energy Efficiency to You

Our Energy Education Mobile is a 40-foot classroom on wheels that travels throughout Alberta. Since 2010.  this free, one-of-a-kind learning experience has visited schools and communities. The Energy Education Mobile is designed for Grade 4 students, and helps educate youth on Alberta’s energy resources and the importance of energy efficiency.

Built for teachers, by teachers

Our Energy Education Mobile was developed in consultation with Alberta teachers. The activities on the Mobile help students learn about Alberta’s energy resources and energy efficiency in a fun and interactive way.

The mobile can accommodate 16 students at a time and each session takes about one hour. Two ATCO coordinators facilitate the learning experience, answer questions and ensure students are engaged as they rotate through our interactive learning stations.

The Energy Education Mobile complements these specific curriculum areas:

  • Grade 4 Science – Waste and Our World. Students learn to identify examples of how energy is wasted and actions they and others can take to minimize waste.
  • Grade 4 Social Studies – Alberta: A Sense of the Land. Students will learn to identify Alberta’s energy resources, where they are located and how those resources are used.

Since the Mobile’s launch in 2010:

  • The Mobile has visited nearly 450 schools in approximately 250 communities throughout Alberta.
  • Almost 22,000 students have learned about energy resources and energy efficiency on the Mobile since its launch.
  • The Mobile has attended more than 100 community events throughout Alberta and approximately 70,000 members of the public have experienced this unique traveling resource



"This was our first time having the Energy Education Mobile and it was WONDERFUL! Everything from booking, having the materials prior to the visit, to the engaging onboard activities. PLEASE contact me next time the Mobile comes to High Prairie."

- Brenda, Grade 4 Teacher
