Teachers continue to report that they do not receive adequate energy instruction in their college and university courses, yet state and national standards have significant sections devoted to the science of energy and to the energy resources used to provide electricity, transportation, and products. Working with education and energy advisors, NEED designs and delivers professional development opportunities for teachers that not only educate, but also energize and remind teachers of the fun that is possible in the classroom.
Whether attending a one-day workshop or the five-day National Energy Conference for Educators, teachers interact and share ideas with their peers. Speakers from local and national energy organizations share information about careers in the energy industry and the exciting energy technologies in development today. In addition, as school districts continue to seek ways to reduce budgets – many turn to energy conservation as a way to reduce overall costs. NEED hosts High Performance Schools Conferences and Energy Management for Schools Conferences for school district facilities personnel.
As consumers and community members, educators are a vital link in the process needed to make energy a priority at home, in the classroom, and in daily conversation. NEED believes in treating educators as the professionals they are, and in making their time with NEED instructors valuable, entertaining and educational. Teachers often evaluate NEED training as “the best professional development I’ve ever attended.”
