That said, currently, only three states require that solar energy technology be taught in schools. This means while this energy is the way of the not so distant future (solar energy ready to be embraced fully NOW), the information needed to bring this more sustainable and renewable energy into our daily lives is being withheld from those who will be creating our future; the children of the world. Empowered by the Sun is changing this. By offering a specially curated and developed curriculum to children around the world designed to teach them about what solar energy is, and how to use it, via creating solar circuit panels for themselves. What's more, they are traveling around the country teaching their curriculum and spreading the word about solar energy in their totally solar powered van dubbed "Sunny". In order to keep this worthy dream alive, however, they need continued support and are accepting donations via a Kickstarter campaign, offering several donor benefits as well.
