Kidwind is coming back to NY for FIVE more teachers' workshops. If you are
interested in renewable energy you will want to attend this in depth
workshop on wind energy. We will help you dig deeper into the wind and
introduce your students to the science behind the fastest growing energy
resource in the world.

These workshops will appeal to middle/high school science and technical
education teachers who are interested in renewable energy, physics,
engineering and design. No knowledge of wind energy is required to attend
the workshop and they are offered FREE of charge.

Participants will learn the basic principles behind wind energy and how to
introduce students to wind energy concepts using standards-based activities
in an engaging, hands-on manner. Some workshops will include a tour of
local wind farms (Lowville).

Classroom materials and a comprehensive curriculum package are included free
of charge in the workshop. Lunch will be provided for all attendees.

Teachers will leave the workshop with $75 worth materials to replicate the
lessons back in their classroom. Teachers will also receive 8 hours of
professional development.

No prior knowledge of wind energy is required to attend.
