Teacher Training Press release
Cooperative Energy Teacher Workshop
On January 16th, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County is hosting a workshop for parents and educators interested in delivering renewable and alternative energy curricula. Led by Neal Abrams, Associate Professor at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), the training is designed to promote the understanding and use of renewable energy technologies as they pertain to both the classroom and outside world. Connections will be made between these energy technologies and NYS science learning standards for curriculum development and implementation. More specifically, concepts address: high school earth science curriculum with a focus on earth system science, living environment and connections to biological energy sources, chemistry with concepts in quantum chemistry and electrochemistry, and physics content including circuitry and solid-state electronics. Broader topics of environmental science, general science, and technology are also addressed based on attendee interest and demographics.
The workshop will take place at the offices of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County on January 16th from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Lunch and information on how to obtain kits and curriculum will be provided.
