LivingWise® (Iowa only)
The best way for students to learn about energy efficiency is through a hands-on approach and the LivingWise program offers just that. Middle school students participate in interactive energy lessons and receive a kit with low-cost energy-saving measures, such as a low-flow showerhead, a compact fluorescent light bulb, and a faucet aerator.
The students bring the kit home and actually install the measures themselves. These small changes result in immediate energy savings and encourage energy-efficient behaviors in the classroom and at home.

Trees for Kids (Iowa only)
Trees improve the landscaping on school grounds and when planted in the right location, improve the energy efficiency of the building itself. The Trees for Kids program, in conjunction with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, provides schools the opportunity to apply for tree planting grants at new and existing schools during spring and fall.
