Energy Institute for Educators
Institute dates: August 4-6, 2014
Overview: Energy powers our global economy, supports our well-being, and ties into pressing sustainability issues such as global climate change. Energy is also a fundamental cross-cutting concept in science and science education that bridges disciplines. It is integral to understanding phenomena in chemistry, biology, physics, earth sciences and engineering. The Energy Institute for Educators provides the opportunity for educators to engage with cutting-edge energy research at UW-Madison, and gain practical tools and materials for teaching students fundamentals of energy and sustainable energy systems. The theme for the 2014 program is Energy, sustainability and climate change: Bridging contemporary science and engineering with classroom learning.
