Help us write existing curricula

Our main focus right now is the Solar Photovoltaic Curriculum. You can contribute to this by:

  • doing research and/or sharing knowledge or activity ideas for lessons currently in stage 0.
  • creating a lesson outline (stage 1) for any stage 0 lesson that has lots of information (think about how long the lesson might be - you might want to split it into two or even more lessons at this point)
  • testing activities or experiments listed in stage 1 lessons to make sure they work as expected - share your results!
  • write the next stage for any lesson that is at stage 1 or higher and has feedback. Refer to the explanation of stages to see what each stage should focus on.
