The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has released the third edition of the Energy Resources Unit in the Michigan Environmental Education Curriculum Support (MEECS). The revisions focus more on using data available on the internet to understand the changing nature of Michigan’s energy portfolio.
“The third edition of the MEECS Energy Resources Unit has been thoroughly revised to include the most recent energy data and align more closely with Next Generation Science Standards,” said Michael Libbee, MEECS Project Coordinator and Central Michigan University professor.
MEECS is comprised of seven environmental education units that are specific to Michigan including land and environment, ecosystems and biodiversity, land use, water quality, air quality, climate change and energy resources.
Units are available for purchase through the Central Michigan University website at www.cmich.edu by typing MEECS in the search bar.
