Who: Middle and high school teachers (training limited to 20 attendees)
Cost: $175/person for the day. Includes 6 hours of PD and a free kit rental.
Facilitators: Brian Betournay, Laura MacLachlan, Mariah Keagy, and other VEEP staff

Training dates & locations:

  • Friday, March 30, 8:30 am-3:30 pm, Hartford Town Hall, Hartford, VT
  • Monday, May 7, 8:30 am–3:30 pm, Spark Space, Burlington Electric Department, Burlington, VT
  • Tuesday, May 15, 8:30 am-3:30 pm, Rutland Central Supervisory Office, Rutland, VT

In this six-hour workshop, teachers will get their hands on a variety of resources to help make learning about electricity, the environment, and climate change fun and engaging for students in grades 6–12.

This training will also support teachers’ understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and how to make students’ thinking visible. We will discuss formative assessment strategies, phenomena, and storylines, and, most importantly, provide training on how to use all the VEEP gear that teachers can borrow to support energy and climate education.

Teachers will leave with an example macro-storyline that supports the Electricity, Renewables, and Climate Change equipment kit, and each teacher will receive a free kit rental.
