KidWind currently offers eight different REcharge Lab training sessions, assembled by grade level as well as by solar or wind energy topics. The course content for younger students focuses on introductory wind and solar power concepts, while older grades become more involved with data collection, scientific process, and more complex concepts like energy storage.
For the $395 registration fee, participating educators will receive four hours of comprehensive training, corresponding continuing education hours, an educator pack of the Lab materials (a one-person version of the classroom kits for purchase), and a one-time use voucher for $100 in KidWind store credit.
KidWind will host a total of 40 REcharge Labs in the following cities: Fargo, ND; Bozeman, MT; Austin, TX; Houston, TX; San Francisco, CA; San Diego, CA; Princeton, NJ; New York, NY; Washington, DC; Virginia Beach, VA; Boston, MA; Ashville, NC; Chicago, IL; Denver, CO and Salt Lake City, UT.
REcharge Labs are made possible in part by KidWind’s Future of Renewables Initiative (FORI).
The FORI serves as the hub between wind and solar companies, researchers, and industry professionals to provide educators and students with innovative renewable energy education. Join FORI today to support KidWind’s programming like REcharge Labs.
