Interested in teaching students about renewable energy? Enroll in the 2018 REcharge Academy – you can even win a scholarship!
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.
