RENEWABLE ENERGY TRAINING WORKSHOP

The KidWind Project and WindWinRI are hosting the twelfth annual REcharge Academy at the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center in Narragansett, Rhode Island, on July 15–18, 2019. The four-day training will focus on wind power and the future of offshore wind. By providing the context and content needed to teach renewable energy concepts in classrooms, this intensive training blends lectures on the science behind wind power and the politics, technologies, and economics of the offshore wind energy industry with replicable hands-on STEM lessons for K–12 students. As a capstone to the event, attendees will take a trip to the first offshore wind farm in the United States—the Block Island Wind Farm. Educators can apply for scholarships donated by the sponsors of REcharge Academy. Applications are due by April 1, 2019. The second and third rounds of scholarship applications are due by April 1, 2019, and May 15, 2019, respectively.
