Education: NEWBio Teacher Training Workshop DEADLINE:
(NEWBio) Spend a week (July 10-14, 2017) at University Park (Penn State) learning about current bioenergy research from nationally recognized faculty. Renewable Energy alternatives are vital for the health of our planet, and the NEWBio Project, funded by the USDA, is helping us learn more about how to best realize this vision.
Participate in inquiry-based classroom activities which replicate the science and engineering research practices being conducted by researchers. Renewable Energy is a hot topic today, and this workshop will provide teachers with content knowledge and activities to immediately use in their classrooms. This workshop is a STEM integrated experience, providing resources and skills to help teachers work with their colleagues to implement these concepts into their classroom.
Topics include: biofuels, biopower, bioproducts, biomass, bioheat, sustainability, and systems thinking. Learn about the research being conducted in the field and how you can conduct your own research in the classroom. READ MORE
