Miller, SD - This one day workshop will appeal to elementary/middle/high school science and technical education teachers who are interested in renewable energy, physics, engineering and design. NO knowledge of wind energy is required to attend the course.
From the grain grinders of ancient Holland to the wind farms being constructed all around South Dakota, wind power has captured the public imagination with its simplicity and elegance. Dig deeper into the wind and introduce your students to the science behind the fastest growing energy resource in the world.
In this workshop participants will learn the basic principles behind wind energy and how to introduce students to wind energy concepts using standards-based activities in an engaging, hands-on manner. We will also explore the wind turbine at Miller School.
Over $75 worth of classroom materials and curriculum materials are included free of charge in the course.
