REcharge Academy to train educators on renewable energy

July 31, 2023 - August 3, 2023

The 2023 REcharge Academy will focus on offshore wind energy and wind.

Event Description

The REcharge team looks forward to building offshore wind turbines and testing them on a beach. Expect days packed with learning about the politics, technologies and economics of renewable energy coupled with a range of engaging activities you can bring back to your students.

Now in its 17th year, the REcharge Academy is an educator training program focused on renewable energy. This intensive training blends lectures from experts and tours of energy facilities with replicable hands-on K-12 lessons. The 2023 REcharge Academy will launch new offshore wind activity guides, funded by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA), in addition to materials from KidWind, NEED, WhiteBox Learning and Vernier.

Over 550 educators of all disciplines have attended REcharge Academies. After the academy experience, instructors may opt to simply incorporate lessons and curricula into their own classrooms, or they may go further and work with local schools and districts to share the resources they’ve explored or train other teachers in wind and solar.

Location and date:
