St. Cloud Area Solar Educator's Workshop

More About St. Cloud Area Solar Educator's Workshop


Join IPS Solar and our Education Director, Michael Cartwright (a physics teacher for over 20 years) as we demonstrate the available curricula IPS Solar can provide your school. This workshop is a great way to enhance your professional development and add to your continuing education requirements.

Materials are geared towards 4th - 12th grade educators. In this hands-on training, educators will be going on a solar scavenger hunt, building solar gizmos, and participating in other solar challenges. During these activities, educators will be learning about solar water pumping, power storage, and the variables that impact the efficiency of solar panels. Teachers don't need any prior knowledge of solar energy. They will learn about how solar power works and how to implement activities in their classroom.

All teachers and educators are welcome to attend!
