WHAT DID THE TEACHERS HAVE TO SAY?
“I had no idea that this workshop would be as ’empowering’ as it was. This workshop empowered me to learn many aspects about energy that I had not really thought of before. I was in awe over so many things that I think, we, as educators and the general public are not aware of.”EDNA BILLINGSLEY
“I teach energy and electricity as two different units. I think that these activities would be a great unit to squeeze between those two units. These activities will reinforce energy and energy conservation, but would be a good springboard for our unit on electricity. My students will benefit from the multi-faceted way that these lessons are designed. They don’t just teach standards, but understanding of energy.”Taylor Matheson
“The networking was great – I met so many great educators! However, I learned so much about energy and energy conservation that I did not know before and I feel so much more knowledgeable now! We were taught in the same manner that we will teach our students – hands on – and that was great!”Betsy Turner
