Train to become a wind education expert this summer
Submitted by MIchael Arquin
KidWind will train another 30 educators to become WindSenators, people who will provide states with knowledgeable, experienced wind energy educators that can help others get the tools and information they need to teach the public about wind energy. The training will happen at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, June 23-27, 2014.
The WindSenators training is a unique opportunity to develop your own knowledge of wind energy science while also learning how to use our curriculum and educational materials to teach about wind in K-12 classrooms. If you want to become an expert about wind energy, and you are ready to share this knowledge with teachers and students in your region, apply to become a WindSenator today!
The cost for teachers to attend the training is $1500. The fee does not cover travel to and from the training location in Saint Paul, MN.
KidWind currently has several partners offering scholarships for qualifying teachers to attend the WindSenators Training this year. View scholarship opportunities to determine which ones you're eligible for at the web site.
There is an application process for all attendees. Applications will be accepted until April 1, 2014.
