Solarize Your World Professional Development Opportunity

Friday, April 13, 2018 8:12 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We are happy to announce that the Concord Consortium will host a professional development “Solarize Your World” workshop for high school science teachers at the York Harbor Inn in the picturesque town of York Harbor, Maine. The workshop will begin with lunch on Sunday, June 10, and will run through Tuesday, June 12, at 3 p.m. Lodging, meals, and mileage reimbursement will be provided and participants will receive a $400 stipend for completing the workshop.

At the “Solarize Your World” workshop you’ll be introduced to projects that will allow your students to engage in science and engineering practices with authentic applications. You’ll become familiar with a free computer-aided design (CAD) tool, Energy3D, which provides students with a virtual laboratory to engineer complex real-world solar solutions for homes, schools, public buildings, parking lots, and more!

This workshop is funded from generous grants from the National Science Foundation and General Motors.

If interested, please complete this application by April 13. Note that we only have 25 spaces available, so we will review applications and confirm attendance by April 20.

Submit Application

Feel free to invite other engineering, physics, Earth science, and physical science teachers in your science department.
