Energizing Student Potential: Exploring Energy with Area Teachers

 

Dresden, Braidwood and LaSalle Generating Stations hosted 12 area middle school teachers Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019 for an Energizing Student Potential workshop in Dresden’s Training Building. 

The stations partnered with the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to offer a STEM-focused educational energy program with the goal of empowering young students to explore opportunities in STEM fields and help them discover their own path to innovation.

The Feb. 21 ESP program was designed to help educators bring energy into their schools and provide tools and resources necessary for students and teachers to explore energy together. 

Teachers began the day rotating through six stations of experiments from the Science of Energy kit.
