What does it take to build a sustainable, green energy community? 8th Grade students from across the United States are showing us how using WhyPower, an interactive learning game within the oldest and largest interactive learning world, WhyVille.

Power Across Texas partnered with Numedeon, DaVinci Minds, the Texas Governor’s Office, and the Texas Workforce Commission to develop and launch WhyPower to challenge 8th graders to develop a new green energy community from the virtual ground up, with emphasis on designing their virtual homes to be energy efficient.

WhyPower is part of the WhyCareers project. Through this project, students will be exposed to green energy career pathways and then linked to community college career resources through the Career Pathway Builder. WhyCareers includes an integrated standards-based STEM classroom curriculum.

Kids can engage in the WhyVille virtual world and play the WhyPower game for free. WhyVille is a safe place for kids to interact, engage, and learn.  Get started and create a WhyVille account today!
