Energy literacy starts in the classroom.

Holland BPW & Educators

Holland Board of Public Works is a strong advocate for educating students on where their utilities come from and how they are provided. We believe that providing context on what is happening in their community will help them to become better informed and engaged citizens.

Additionally, we strive to increase the perspectives offered to children and young adults about the resources our societies need to function, and how to responsibly use and manage those resources to create a sustainable and secure future.

Class Visits & Experiences

Holland BPW is passionate about working together with educators to create unique and impactful experiences for students across West Michigan. As such, we place high value on real-world, application-focused, place-based education. We welcome educators and their students to the HEP for field trips year-round to utilize our safe, state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility, that is appropriate for students of all ages.

These visits are flexible, able to be customized to meet the needs of your students, meant to complement your in-classroom curriculum, and are always 100% free. Reach out using the contact form below to set up a visit for your classroom, club, or community group.

Holland BPW presents the Second Annual Student Art Contest, hosted at Holland Energy Park in partnership with Macatawa Area Coordinating Council.

Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) and Macatawa Area Coordinating Council (MACC) are hosting an art contest and are accepting submissions through May 1, 2020 from students in 1st through 12th grade.

Group Visits 

Safety is a core value for all of us at Holland Energy Park. Amidst the COVID-19 situation, the safety of our community and employees is top priority. As members of our community, we all have a responsibility to enact measures that slow the spread of COVID-19. In response to social distancing recommendations from national, state and local officials, we are not scheduling group visits and tours at this time. We look forward to resuming visitor center activities when the pandemic situation has past.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
