Generation Hydro

Hydro Tasmania is developing a brand new education program called Generation Hydro for primary and high school students. We want to help students learn about the value of renewable energy and encourage their study of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.

Our education program will help young Tasmanians understand career opportunities and be informed and involved in the state’s energy future.

For more than a century, Tasmanians have relied on our hydropower to grow and support the state’s communities and economy.

Hydro Tasmania has led clean energy innovation in Australia - building 55 major dams, 30 hydropower stations and two major wind farms.

We want to bring this story to life for primary and high school students across Tasmania through lesson plans, activity based incursions, power station tours, fun competitions, projects and digital games. We can’t wait to share Generation Hydro with you.
