According to a United States Department of Energy survey, 75 percent of people think they have a lot of energy knowledge, yet only 12 percent of those surveyed passed a quiz on basic energy topics. Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) believes that in order for our country to make smart energy choices tomorrow, we need to begin educating the next generation today.
To do this, we formed CPV Educates, an energy education program to create a better world by teaching the next generation about energy and the choices we make about its use.
Our team is comprised of educational professionals and energy experts working together to bring real world experiences into the classroom. CPV offers this program to participating schools and organizations free-of-charge as part of its ongoing public outreach program. CPV Educates works closely with educators and administrators to accommodate different grade levels and group sizes. Our curriculum is flexible, can be modified to suit your classroom and is designed to be integrated into existing lesson plans.

Some Words about Us
Great! Awesome! When can we do this again?! The best thing ever! These are but a few statements of students concerning the CPV presentation. Students engage in hands-on activities as they learn about science through real world application. Lessons meet the State’s standards while engaging students in project based learning. It is a fun filled day as even teacher gain the opportunity to step into the role of learner. While we have participated for two years we look forward to future lessons and visitations from CPV and their affiliates.
I wanted to express my personal thanks for the connection that CPV Educates has made with the students of Port Reading School #9. For the past few years, our students have benefitted from the experience they have shared with your knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. The thoughtful, interactive curriculum designed to help 4th Graders deepen their understanding of Energy is a clear success. By having the opportunity to participate in Energy songs and games, in addition to building circuits, and more, the children of our school have a meaningful, real world understanding of the material. I'm sure your program has inspired many of our students to look towards the sciences as a field of interest, as they continue with their studies beyond 4th Grade. Woodbridge Township School District is fortunate to have your new facility built within our town, as you have become a true friend in education.
