Energyteachers has an undeniable commitment to energy education. They sent one of their representatives to observe, participate, and aid in facilitating one of our three-day teacher/student workshops. His fluency with energy production/usage and his understanding of the physics that underlies wind, water, and solar energy was a valuable contribution. We also benefitted greatly from his expertise in pedagogical strategies, like emphasis on constructing models, for scaffolding energy concepts. Beyond this, Energyteachers also lent us equipment for a student wind activity and a demonstration which clearly illustrated the principle of induction.
