Rice Creek Session to Explore ‘4 E’s of Energy’

OSWEGO — A daylong interactive workshop on “The 4 E’s of Energy” will take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 6, at SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station.

The workshop promotes an understanding of energy’s relationship with the environment, the economy, efficiency and education. Participants will use hands-on activities to explore energy forms and sources, global climate change, and actions humans can take to address the energy challenges.

Teachers are welcome to attend to learn how to integrate energy education into their lessons with student-centered hands-on activities and receive state Education Department standards-aligned instructional materials for classes from kindergarten to sixth grade. This workshop is for in-service and pre-service teachers, youth leaders and home school educators. Participants may be eligible for professional development credit, and should check with their districts on how to receive it.

Program size is limited for this admission-free workshop. Lunch will be provided.
