Lighting the Way with Wind and Solar: Pathways to a Sustainable Energy Future

2-day Workshop for Middle & High School Educators
Connect with scientists and educators from the Wade Institute for Science Education and Mass Audubon, gain an understanding of the power of inquiry-based learning to inspire a passion for science in students, and come away energized! Find out more about how energy, climate change, and sustainable solutions connect to the 2016 MA Science and Technology/Engineering standards. Walk away with inquiry-based activities and a kit of equipment you can use to get started with your own students.
During this two-day professional development workshop, experiment with renewable energy technologies to understand how they can be used to produce sustainable electricity and reduce human impacts on the climate. Engage in hands-on, minds-on activities as you build a solar-powered fountain, design the best blades to catch the wind, and compete to fill an electrical grid with the most effective energy sources. Discover first-hand how wind turbines and solar panels generate power, and why communities are relying increasingly on these systems to meet their energy needs.
