For Families

Energy Data Mapping

Fremont families with at least one child aged 9-14 are invited to participate in a five-week research project. Participants install a device in their home to stream real-time energy data, journal about activities that use energy in the home, and observe their energy consumption in real time. ON HIATUS DUE TO COVID

Energy Data Visualization

Fremont junior high and high school students are invited to participate in this online course where they will work with their household's own electricity data to learn how to visualize data, save energy and present results using Tableau, a software tool designed to help people see and understand data.

Girl Scouts
For Girl Scouts


Girls Learning Environment and Energy (GLEE) is a joint effort between Stanford University and the Girl Scouts of Northern California to teach Girl Scouts and their families about energy conservation. Materials to implement GLEE in your own troop are available to troops in any state!
