Event Description

The Wisconsin Energy Institute and KEEP are joining together to bring the KidWind Educator Workshop to you! Join us and learn how to explore the power of wind and solar with your students! Participants will review energy and electricity basics, design and test blades in a wind tunnel, explore an online solar dashboard with inquiry questions, and preview ready-to-use renewable energy curriculum.

You'll leave with the resources and confidence to use renewable energy as a lens into hands-on science, technology, and engineering exploration in the classroom (and you'll get some free gear, too)!

During this ½ day workshop, participants will also learn about the annual WI KidWind Challenge and gain tips and tricks for coaching student teams through the process of designing and constructing small-scale turbines.

KidWind materials are best for 4-12th grade students.
Certificates of attendance will be provided upon request.
