CESA #4 is excited once again to partner with The Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education in providing a variety of professional learning opportunities to enhance the integration of environmental education into existing curricula across all content disciplines. Each workshop utilizes standards-based activities to advance place-based resources to engage learners. Each workshop is 7 hours and will include collaboration and curriculum planning time. All workshop participants will receive ready-to-use hands-on lesson and numerous supporting resources. Teachers will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education upon successful completion of each workshop. All workshops support schools in their Green and Healthy Schools Wisconsin initiatives. 

Empower students and staff to be part of the energy solution through relevant experimentation using cutting-edge technology. This workshop utilizes the school building as a teaching tool to explore energy efficiency concepts and evaluate energy use through hands-on discovery and advice from energy professionals. Participants develop energy-savings action plans that meet demand for project- and STEM-based learning and link to future career options. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away. Recommended for teachers of grades 5-12 and schools undergoing energy management services.

Cost: $150 per person (Districts with #310 tech seats may use "1" seat per person to cover the registration fee. Please indicate this in the registration notes.)
