Abstract
Education has very good role to make a good civilian. Current global issues such as climate change, energy crisis, and environmental sustainability highlight the need to energy education. Without a basic understanding of energy, people cannot make informed decisions on topics ranging from energy use at home to national energy policy. People with energy literacy can understand the nature and role of energy in the world and in our lives. They will also know how much energy he or she uses, for what purpose, and where the energy comes from. The task of this study was to draw out the responsibility of kids to energy use and to teach them energy literacy by using the simulation of computer game. This computer game removed the obstacle in front of realizing energy topics and made kids’ participating the learning of energy issues active. Through a teaching test at Hualien Zhong Zheng elementary school, kids who ever experienced this computer game were more patient with all points of view. Eventually they will apply this understanding to make informed energy decisions.
