History of TREC Education
TREC Education was created by the TREC Renewable Energy Co-op to support, through education and capacity building, its mandate for the transition to a democratic renewable energy future. Established in 1998, TREC was formed to develop community-owned renewable energy projects and achieved a major milestone in 2002 by building the first urban-based, co-operatively owned wind turbine in North America. In the process, TREC realized the need for greater awareness and education around renewable energy and green technologies, especially for youth. Out of this, TREC’s education program was founded, which has grown from providing general renewable energy information to developing and delivering unique learning activities around the Ontario Science and Technology curriculum topics to Ontario students.
A growing interest in the educational programs led to the incorporation and launch of TREC Education in 2010, a registered charity, which now delivers these education programs. These education programs have engaged more than 100,000 students over the past 10 years. There has been significant and regular investments over the past decade to ensure our education, training and outreach programs are the best learning experiences possible, linked to the curriculum of schools in Ontario when applicable, and are an engaging and memorable experience for all.
