Illinois Sustainable Education Project (ISTEP)

Address 620 E. Adams
Springfield, Illinois 62701
DescriptionThe Illinois Bureau of Energy and Recycling has developed an integrated approach to energy and recycling education programs under one program -- the Illinois Sustainable Education Project (ISTEP).

This new integrated approach focuses on renewable energy, energy efficiency and the process of recycling as key learning examples of resource conservation and environmental stewardship. The program will continue to emphasize the link between energy, recycling, the economy, and the environment and will provide Illinois students and teachers with the necessary information to make informed decisions. ISTEP offers educational resources, including hands-on inquiry kits, bookmarks, and posters. ISTEP materials incorporate energy efficiency and recycling into a variety of subjects including literacy, math, social science, and fine art.
