Project Title & Description
Environmental Education - Solar Education Workshop
Rising Sun Energy Center (RSEC) will sponsor one-day Solar Education Workshops four times a year for the professional development of 30-50, 4th to 12th grade teachers to teach them how to lead conservation and renewable energy projects for their students. With the estimated participating teachers, the training will provide the curriculum to a combined total of up to 2,400 students. This effort will result in bringing students hands-on experience of energy education through projects such as solar-race car building, passive solar home model building, and solar electric wiring and circuits. EPA funding for this project is in the amount of $15,000.
