A trailer is helping students get excited to learn about energy, what it does and where it comes from.
The EnergyWise Hub, developed from a partnership between TasNetworks and Greening Australia, provides an interactive learning experience about energy to students.
Inside the trailer are different items and learning experiences that allow students to test types of energy and how much energy is used by certain objects.
Greening Australia's education manager Nel Smit said the trailer is all about teaching students to be more energy aware.

"It's an exciting way for kids to explore renewable energy versus non renewable," she said.
Deloraine High School science teacher Kim Cruwys said it was fantastic to have the trailer visit.
"It sparks a lot more questions and engagement, and it's something different," she said.
Ms Cruwys said linking a science lesson to real-world organisations and scenarios was powerful.
"If we don't have a general population who has some decent foundation in scientific principles, they are going to misunderstand what is going on in the world around them or misinterpret the information."
