Virginia 2018

Through a grant from Dominion, NEED and the Science Museum of Virginia partnered to design and deliver
Energy in Virginia to Virginia’s teachers and students. The new curriculum module adds Virginia information
and energy data to NEED’s energy materials and includes a new learning map of Virginia’s energy infrastructure,
lessons and activities, and new exhibits at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond, VA. To launch the
new program, NEED and SMV hosted a one-day teacher training workshop for local educators and Boys
and Girls Club leaders from the Greater Richmond area.

 

Teachers can access NEED curriculum online. As resources are available, teacher workshops
and hands-on kits are available. Individual state curriculum correlations are available here.
