The poster contest isn’t the only free school program MVEA offers. MVEA is encouraging teachers in the MVEA service area to enroll in a FREE three day conference for educators (teaching grades 4-12) on June 27 – 29 in Westminster, CO. The National Energy Education Development (NEED) project is a conference held each summer in conjunction with MVEA’s power supplier, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association. The conference gives teachers the opportunity to learn about energy and STEM integration in the classroom and about meeting Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards using energy and more.
And the best part? There’s no cost for educators in the MVEA service area. Attending teachers receive a NEED Science of Energy Kit, a class-set of NEED Energy Info books (at grade level), access to all NEED Curriculum Guides and supplemental resources. Teachers can apply to attend the 2017 conference at: www.regonline.com/needtristate2017.
