In total, over 40 teachers attended these inquiry-based workshops, which aim to boost student energy literacy through teacher professional development. A generous donation from the Dorr Foundation, as well as support from the KidWind Project and REcharge Labs, enabled MITS to provide teachers with kits of energy activity materials for immediate use in their classrooms. Educators involved in these electrifying experiences left equipped with knowledge and materials to empower their students to design sustainable energy solutions.
The next workshop in this series will be held at Mass Audubon’s Acadia Wildlife Sanctuary (Easthampton, MA) on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th, 2018. Visit //wadeinstitute.wpengine.com/dev/teacher-workshops/ for more about MITS’ teacher workshops.
