Teach and learn

Here is where teachers (or parents) will find a wide range of resources to support teaching around renewable energy generation (solar, hydro, wind) and energy efficiency.

Our resources have been designed to fit within the New Zealand curriculum and cover years 1 to 13.


We offer a range of curriculum based activities and resources across all levels. We’ve worked with teachers to create these so they’ll slot into your lesson plans.

Maker Projects

Hands-on maker projects designed to engage kids and help bring the exciting world of energy to life at school or home.



Words, words, words …. Here you can find the meaning of words used throughout this website.

Useful websites

Search engines like google have radically changed the way we find information but to get you started we’ve included some quick links to sites we think are really good.

School-gen Teachers Collective

Have a great idea for an activity or school resource that will engage students in STEM?
Or maybe you are a teacher who develops curriculum resources?

The School-gen team are always looking for new content and we can work with you to develop your ideas. If you’re interested, get in touch via [email protected] and we can discuss how we can work together to grow young New Zealander’s interest in science, technology, engineering and maths.
