2015 Summer Institute for Educators…registration now open.
The 5-day Solar Schoolhouse Summer Institute for Educators (SIE) for 2015 is scheduled for July 19-24th, in Sebastopol, California. This the 13th year we’ve offered this solar energy professional development experience for educators. Consistent themes are hands-on, relevant, and real-world… and fun!
Participating Educators learn the fundamentals and history of passive solar design, solar thermal, and solar electricity, then apply these lessons in a variety of projects (simple solar ovens, model solar homes, solar powered fountains, cell phone chargers, LED lights, and more). Lessons are adapted to your teaching situation and aligned with Common Core & Next Generation Science Standard goals.
Limited scholarships are available. To Learn more and to Register visit http://solarschoolhouse.org/sie2015/
