New Hampshire Energy Education Project

Energy & Science Programming for New Hampshire Schools

VEEP supports NH schools through teacher professional development, in-class workshops for students, and curriculum resource kits.

New Hampshire teachers now have access to curriculum support kits and professional development with the launch of the New Hampshire Energy Education Project in 2017.  We are offering our standards-aligned teacher trainings and kits packed with real, hands-on equipment throughout the state. Brian Betournay is our dedicated New Hampshire staff person: be in touch at brian@veep.org.


Electricity, Renewables, and Climate Change training

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 storyline that supports the Electricity, Renewables, and Climate Change equipment kit, and each teacher will receive a free kit rental.

Timing: 8 am to 3 pm (with a 1-hour break for lunch)

Where: Your school!

Who: Middle and high school teachers

Cost: $175/person. Includes 6 hours of PD and a free kit rental.

Facilitators: Brian Betournay, program manager for the New Hampshire Energy Education Project, and VEEP staff


Costs

VEEP can bring professional development trainings and the use of curriculum support kits statewide into New Hampshire at the same low subsidized rates that we provide them to Vermont schools. Additionally, we can bring in-class workshops to schools in southwestern New Hampshire and throughout the Upper Valley. We are working on expanding our ability to bring workshops to other parts of the state, so if you are interested, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

If your school is new to working with VEEP or does not have a budget for workshops or training, we may be able to provide you with free or reduced price student workshops. Please fill out our workshop voucher application form to apply.
