About the REcharge Academy

The REcharge Academy is a week-long educator training workshop on renewable energy. The intensive training blends lectures from experts and tours of energy facilities with replicable hands-on K-12 lessons to give educators content, as well as context. Participants learn how to build solar-powered cars and boats and wind turbines, as well get a deep understanding of the science behind these projects so they can teach renewable energy concepts in their classrooms. Check out the 2017 REcharge Academy Report to see what educators learned.

Dates:  July 23-27, 2018
James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA
