Event description

Description

This Clinic is a FREE afternoon to introduce educators to the 2019 Solar Car Challenge, sponsored by Clark Public Utilities. This engineering challenge is open to all grade levels.

Educators will be introduced to the challenge and the judging criteria, investigate different sections of the Activity Guide containing suggested classroom activities and build a model solar car to begin the process of engineering design in their classroom.

About CE™: With the help of corporate and philanthropic partners, CE prepares the next generation to lead a clean energy future. It is a career-connected education program that trains educators to bring clean energy science and technology skills and knowledge to life for their students. Our vision: powered by a clean energy economy, our communities are thriving and resilient--in one generation.

CE empowers educators with knowledge, expertise, and capacity to advance their own professional development and increase STEM skills in their classrooms. Through this, teacher leaders emerge and lead their districts or region in renewable energy STEM/CTE education. As these regions take ownership to sustain and support this development, we will see an informed citizenry of educated energy consumers and problem-solvers from all backgrounds.

The program invests in educators to integrate the latest renewable energy science and technology into their lesson plans. We provide professional training, teacher-generated lesson plans, interactive science kits and materials, and access to real-time energy data to help bring renewable energy topics to life. www.cebrightfutures.org

Words from the Workshop Sponsor:

Clark Public Utilities Logo

Clark Public Utilities is committed to encouraging the development of local renewable energy resources and providing curriculum support to area educators. For more than a decade, the CE program has been funded by utility customers through a portion of voluntary Green Lights contributions. Through the program, 13 photovoltaic solar arrays have been installed on Clark County schools and funding is now focused on the development and classroom implementation of curriculum related to renewable energy.
