Looking for an invigorating professional development training experience this summer? Join fellow K-12 educators from across the country at The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project’s 2017 National Energy Conference for Educators.  Happening July 16-20 in Milwaukee, WI! 

The 2017 Energy Conference for Educators brings together educators that are passionate about bringing energy education to their classrooms. In five interactive days in Milwaukee, the conference provides teachers with the most up-to-date information on all aspects of energy including the science of energy, sources of energy, transportation, electricity, efficiency and environmental and economic impacts.

Participants receive the training and materials to implement innovative hands-on energy units in their classrooms, multi-disciplinary teams, and after-school programs. NEED leaders at the conference help participants develop specialized units with NEED lessons that integrate energy curriculum into classrooms at any grade level and with students of all learning styles, while focusing on the successful achievement of state and national education goals by using correlations of NEED materials to the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core standards and state science standards.

Attending teachers will receive credit towards a NEED Energy Kit and access to all NEED Curriculum Guides, and supplemental resources. This conference is often attended by energy industry education and outreach staff who manage or implement energy education programs. The cost of the conference is $1,500 and includes double occupancy lodging, most meals, local transportation to and from the airport in the conference city and curriculum materials. Limited scholarships are available for classroom teachers. Please indicate if you need a scholarship when you apply to attend. Teachers are encouraged to seek local funding and sponsorship to attend.
