National Energy Conference For Educators — July 17-21, 2016 — Arlington, VA
The 2016 Energy Conference for Educators brings together educators that are passionate about bringing energy education to their classrooms. In five interactive days in Washington, D.C., 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. They also receive the materials, training and support to conduct in-services in their areas to introduce the NEED program to others. NEED leaders at the conference help participants develop specialized units that meet state standards and can be utilized with students of all learning styles.
Attending teachers receive a NEED Kit, a class-set of NEED Energy Infobooks (at grade level), 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.
NEED lessons integrates energy curriculum into classrooms at any grade level and with students of all learning styles. Focuses on the successful achievement of state and national education goals using correlations of NEED materials to the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core standards and state science standards.
