Thanks to a generous grant from The Boeing Company, MEEC’s “Energy From the Sun” teacher workshops will equip educators with the tools to enable their students to conduct scientific research utilizing solar energy, draw conclusions, and develop critical thinking skills while learning how to reach logical conclusions and solutions about our future energy usage.
Each participating teacher will receive a kit that contains a Solar Oven, Solar Panel Kit, UV beads PLUS standards-based curriculum from the National Environmental Education Development Program (NEED). NEED curriculum includes four levels: Primary, Elementary, Intermediate, and Secondary. The NEED Project curriculum includes Teachers’ Guides and Student Lab Books for hands-on activities as well as a variety of resources to learn about renewable energy and their applications. Student Lab Book activities are designed for group learning, which promotes interaction among students. NEED’s K-12 curriculum helps schools meet the Common Core State Standards, develops student leadership, and brings the latest technology into the classroom. Each kit is valued at over $200!!
