Energy Literacy

I was recently reading the July/August 2022 issue of “Science Scope” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the Editor’s Corner, written by Patty McGinnis.  She wrote a column entitled, “Energy Literacy.”  

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) defines energy literacy as “an understanding of the nature and role of energy in the world and daily lives accompanied by the ability to apply this understanding to answer questions and solve problems.”
