Mounds View Solar Educator Workshop Recap

On Saturday, February 8th, we hosted our first Solar Educator Workshop of 2020 at Mounds View High School. We had a wonderful time helping over 20 teachers develop new solar curriculum to bring to their classrooms and STEM programs!

Our Education Director, Michael Cartwright (a physics teacher for over 20 years) leads the workshops with IPS as a part of our Sunrise Program

Our Sunrise Program provides FREE Training – presenting some data visualization tools, as well as offering insight about how to adapt solar lessons for your classroom.

Sunrise event attendees receive three hours worth of continuing education credits and Solar Activities Kits to use in their classrooms.

IPS Solar hosting a Solar Energy Workshop

SOLAR ENERGY WORKSHOP FOR EDUCATORS

IPS Solar is excited to be bringing a REcharge Labs solar energy workshop to Red Wing Public Schools!

September 23rd 9am-1pm

Come to this workshop to learn about the science and technology around solar energy. The energy-based content combined with standards connected classroom activities will make it easy to bring renewable energy to your classroom.

What can you expect?

This is a FREE Training with lunch provided by IPS Solar.

Materials are geared towards 4th- 12th grade educators. In this hands-on training, educators will be going on a solar scavenger hunt, building solar fountains, and participating in a solar rover distance challenge. During these activities, educators will be learning about solar water pumping, power storage, and the variables that impact the efficiency of solar panels
Teachers do not need any prior knowledge of solar energy. They will learn about how solar power works and how to implement activities in their classroom. Preservice teachers are also invited! This event is also open to educators outside of Red Wing Public Schools.


IPS Solar is hosting this training, and will be presenting some data visualization tools, as well as a tour of the Red Wing Solar Array nearby.
