Dear middle and high school science teachers,
are happy to announce that the Concord
Consortium will be hosting a professional development Energy Science and Engineering Workshop at the Emerson
Inn in Rockport, MA, on October 8, 9, and 10. Lodging, meals, and mileage reimbursement will be provided and participants will receive a $300 stipend for completing the workshop.
This workshop is part of a National Science Foundation-funded project that fuses science and engineering activities in the classroom with authentic applications
in the real world using innovative technologies and industry expertise.
Day 1 — Building Science Investigation
Learn how to use an infrared (IR) camera to illuminate the laws of thermodynamics.
Experience hands-on thermal energy activities for your classroom.
Learn how to guide students to conduct a home energy inspection with an IR camera that may reveal potential energy issues and help their families make
decisions to reduce their energy consumption, utility costs, and carbon emissions.
Day 2 and Day 3 — Solarize Your World
Learn 3D modeling and engineering design concepts using Energy3D, a free computer-aided design tool for building and energy simulations.
Explore strategies for implementing the "Solarize Your World" curriculum projects in which students become "Solar Energy Engineers" and design solar
power solutions for homes, schools, public buildings, parking lots, garages, and more!
If interested, please complete
this application by September 12th.
Note that we only have 30 spaces available, so we will be reviewing applications and confirming attendance by September 15th.
Feel free to invite other Engineering, Physics, Earth Science, and Physical Science teachers in your science department.
