Power engineering experts and educators from the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE) and the Information Trust Institute (ITI) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed educational and outreach materials for the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) project.
CREDC Education Goals
- Link researchers, educators, consumers, and students
- Educate for consumer acceptance and use of smart energy technologies
- Develop interactive lessons and activities
- Create interest in STEM disciplines and careers
- Encourage further learning
The CREDC Education team continues the work of the TCIPG Education project. The team develops interactive lessons and activities designed to link researchers, educators, consumers, and students. The materials illustrate challenges, trade-offs, and decisions required for secure and economical power delivery. The project seeks to involve families learning together while creating interest in STEM disciplines and careers.
The Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) is a Department of Energy-funded project, with support from the Department of Homeland Security.
