Workshop - PADEP Regional Keystone Energy Education Program Workshop

PADEP Regional Keystone Energy Education Program Workshop will take place on October 24, 2013 at the Pennsylvania College of Technology’s General Services Building. 2245 Reach RoadWilliamsport, Lycoming County, Pa. Sign-in: 8:15 a.m. Program: 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.Registration is free.

The Department of Environmental Protection invites middle school teachers, administrators and building managers to a training workshop on the Keystone Energy Education Program (KEEP) to teach and track energy efficiency in school buildings and homes. KEEP is geared to middle school building teams, which includes three teachers of grades 5, 6 or 7, an administrator and a building maintenance manager. Workshop participants will learn about and explore energy issues, including fundamentals and impacts, electricity generation, transportation fuels, careers, energy conservation, student teams and school building energy benchmarking through presentations, tours and hands-on activities. Each team will have the opportunity to integrate high level, standards-based energy education into their formal curriculum. This could include lesson plans, curricular modules and ongoing benchmarking through DOE’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager, resulting in energy efficiency assessments leading to improvements that reduce energy consumption.

The workshops are based on Pennsylvania’s Academic Standards and Assessment Anchors for Environment and Ecology, Science and Technology and Engineering Education. Participating teachers will receive background information, standards-based curricular materials and energy conservation material kits.

Participating teachers will be eligible for seven Act 48 credit hours. Space is limited, so registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The deadline to register is Oct. 11.
