2016 National Energy Conference for Educators

The 2016 Energy Conference for Educators brings together educators that are passionate about bringing energy education to their classrooms. In five interactive days in Washington, D.C., the conference provides teachers with the most up-to-date information on all aspects of energy including the science of energy, sources of energy, transportation, electricity, efficiency and environmental and economic impacts.

Participants receive the training and materials to implement innovative hands-on energy units in their classrooms, multi-disciplinary teams, and after-school programs. They also receive the materials, training and support to conduct in-services in their areas to introduce the NEED program to others. NEED leaders at the conference help participants develop specialized units that meet state standards and can be utilized with students of all learning styles.

The cost of the conference is $1,400 and includes double occupancy lodging, most meals, local transportation to and from the airport in the conference city and curriculum materials. The conference is not for the faint of heart - but has been noted as the most fun a teacher could have while learning.

Attending teachers receive a NEED Kit, a class-set of NEED Energy Infobooks (at grade level), access to all NEED Curriculum Guides, and supplemental resources. This conference is often attended by energy industry education and outreach staff who manage or implement energy education programs.
