Event description

Description

The Seattle Out-of-School-Time Educator Energy Workshop workshop is a FREE full-day professional development training made possible by Bohemian Foundation and CE. This hands-on science and engineering training program offers a review of the science, technology, and out of school time applications of clean energy applicable for elementary and middle school aged children. This opportunity is only available to educators working within the City of Seattle!

In this two half-day workshop we will explore basic energy science and get our hands dirty with a number of easy-to-use activity sets exploring solar energy and electricity. We will also explore the foundations of engineering design, an engaging way to take the natural creativity of children and channel it productively into building, designing, and refining. Attendees will leave with age appropriate kits to implement in their programs.

Registrants are registering for both days from 10am-1pm! Please contact us if you can only attend one day.
