ESU 4: Energy Academy

Students in ESU 4 love energy. The region is home to Nebraska Public Power District’s Cooper Nuclear Station and Omaha Public Power District’s Nebraska City Station (a coal-fired energy plant). Educators in the region saw an opportunity to provide students with a unique opportunity that would expose them to a world of learning and career opportunities.

With partners at the Nebraska and Omaha Public Power Districts and Southeast Community College (SCC) where education specialists and human resources executives saw value in educating the region’s young people about careers in the energy industry, ESU 4 developed an intensive semester-long curriculum that incorporates lessons about all different types of energy in a fun and interactive environment. Watch to learn why ESU 4’s Energy Academy program is one of the most successful of its kind in the region!
