Energy, safety and sustainability education for students
FirstWave is a resource and learning platform that supports online and in-class education.
BC Hydro's school programs
We're working with the Ministry of Education and other partners to make changes to our school programs that align them with the new approach of B.C.'s K to 12 education system.
This includes reviewing and revising our resources over this school year to align our materials with the themes and standards of the new curriculum in B.C. These resources are developed with the help of educators and curriculum specialists with a focus on hydroelectricity, conservation and electrical safety.
