K-12 Energy Education Program for teachers (KEEP)
KEEP is a 16-hour in-service that helps teachers integrate hands-on energy education activities into their classrooms. The program also demonstrates how teachers can use energy education to ensure that their students meet Wisconsin academic standards.
KEEP makes the sometimes-intimidating topic of energy understandable to students of all ages. Second graders can learn about the coal mining process as they "find resources" in chocolate chip cookies. Middle school students can experiment with properties of motors by modeling an electric motor. High school students can discuss "energy futures" by studying energy trends and new technologies. Visit KEEP for more information.
This program is offered to teachers at all grade levels. We offer a limited number of scholarships to teachers from the Cedarburg schools each year. Contact us at 262-375-7650 for more information.
