October is National Energy Awareness Month, and as part of its Energy Education Initiative, the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation’s Office of Energy Programs (OEP) is presenting various studies and tips that encourage increased energy resiliency. One such effort is OEP’s Energy Education Camps for K-12 educators. The camps focus on exercises in which teachers can simulate real-world situations in the classroom to teach students about data collection and ways to improve their school’s energy usage.
OEP is scheduled to conduct two three-day Energy Camps and six one-day Energy Camp Workshops, free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis, between now and September 2017. For more information on energy education, including dates and locations of the training camps, see here.
