Point of No Return Clean Energy Film and Curriculum for K-12
The Point of No Return Educational program uses the award-winning documentary, Point of No Return, the inspirational story of the first solar-powered flight around the world as a jumping off point for hands-on inquiry based K-12 STEM curriculum focusing on clean energy, sustainability and climate solutions. The film and Next Generation Science Standards aligned enrichment curriculum will strengthen environmental literacy and help students develop skills necessary to take on the 21st century challenges posed by climate change: critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration – the “4 CS” of 21st century learning. Hands-on activities will include building small scale solar powered machines, designing efficient batteries, and imagining future sustainable cities. Motivated by the real world example of the Solar Impulse team, students will be encouraged to try and fail and design creative solutions - empowering them to become tomorrow’s problem solvers and innovators in the transition to a more sustainable future.The program is modular and can be utilized for in person learning in classrooms or after school programs or at home during distance learning. Available for free to a select number of Title 1 schools.
