It’s never too early to instill good energy habits in our students and this workshop will show you how while connecting to your curriculum in a fun and engaging way. We’ll demonstrate how to help your students deepen their understanding of core concepts like energy, systems, connectedness, and citizenship. We’ll also learn how your students can become energy (and climate) champions by using energy metering technology to conduct an energy audit and develop a plan to be more energy efficient, conserve energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. You’ll ‘learn by doing’ curriculum-linked energy activities and review some key resources you can use in your classroom. This workshop targets Division I and II teachers. Please bring a laptop or mobile device to access the internet.
