Abstract

This research aims to develop elementary school students' energy-saving knowledge through education programs centering on training college students into cadre teacher, who serve as pioneers that would teach young children in camps or in community activities. This informal education mode initially adopted in Taiwan and applied to teaching materials related to energy-saving education development was promoted in three districts of Taipei, Taichung, and Hualian, in which 67 undergraduates participated in teacher-training camps and 202 students participated in energy education experience camps. The records of t-test pretest-posttest in teacher training programs and the result of t-test in questionnaires responded by elementary school students revealed that there existed significant difference in statistical powers, manifesting the high value of this research.
