For Educators

For Educators The Wisconsin Energy Institute works to engage both teachers and students in energy-related science by developing classroom and non-formal educational materials.

The Wisconsin Energy Institute (WEI) and its partner the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) offer opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school educators to bring real-world research in clean energy into their classrooms.

Educational Materials
WEI develops classroom and nonformal educational materials for students in elementary school up to the undergraduate level. The materials are oriented around a number of core themes, including inquiry-based learning, scientific thought and analysis, and the conservation of matter and energy.
