K-12 Energy Education Camps and Workshops
OEP has a long history of supporting K-12 Energy Education through professional development and student learning opportunities. OEP’s offerings include Energy Education Camps for K-12 Educators, Energy Education Workshops for both educators and students, Outreach Events, and continued support of the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project. These offerings connect the broad topic of energy to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects and provide educators and students with the knowledge and resources necessary to teach energy concepts.
OEP's K-12 program will be partnering with The Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga to offer Energy Education Distance Learning opportunities at no-cost to educators and students. We will begin programming October 1, 2020. To participate in these Virtual Learning opportunities contact Angela. McGee@tn.gov or Alisha.Brewer@tn.gov.
