We’re excited to offer this new workshop series for Sonoma County area educators. Energize your classrooms and empower your students with solar energy activities and projects. As we move toward a clean energy future, it’s important to explore the possibilities through hands-on and project-based activities. Because of its role as the primary energy source on Earth, the Sun’s energy is central to these explorations. Workshops will be held in Sebastopol, at the Solar Schoolhouse workshop/live space that is a ZNE (Zero Net Energy) home powered primarily by the sun.
Educators attending these workshops will receive the Solar Schoolhouse ‘Your Solar Home’ curriculum, classroom solar cell sets, material for specific solar projects, and the training to implement lessons in your own classroom. We’ll also be available to consult and help set up a project at your own school or classroom.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, we’re able to offer these workshops and classroom materials FREE to educators, though registration is required due to limited space. Follow the link below to register for the workshop or workshops of your choice.
