Green Teacher Webinar: "Teaching STEM with Wind and Solar Energy" with Joe Chavez
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) can be intimidating if you do not have the expertise or curriculum to do so. Kenton County Schools have embraced STEM in the realm of renewable energy. NEED (National Energy Education) provides a background and curriculum that allows students to explore STEM concepts while thinking about energy and the environment, both of which are part of the normal science curriculum. Incorporating the kits into the classroom can be a bit challenging without the proper training and motivation.
This presentation will demonstrate why Kenton County uses renewable energy as a backdrop for STEM and how the district has implemented a plan that will expose all students to engineering design, inquiry, and engaging science.
Joe Chavez is the STEM Consultant for Kenton County School District. He is a former life science high school teacher and lab rat. His focus is to enhance the secondary science program by increasing engagement and getting more students involved in “doing” science. He is currently pursuing his Ed.D. in science education.

Green Teacher receives no funding –other than donations - for the webinars, but doing them takes up lots of staff time.
Green Teacher is a non-profit organization which publishes resources to help educators, both inside and outside of schools, to promote global and environmental awareness among young people from elementary through high school. We publish Green Teacher, a quarterly magazine full of teaching ideas from successful “green” educators. Each issue of Green Teacher offers perspectives on the role of education in creating a sustainable future, practical cross-curricular activities for various grade levels, and reviews of the latest teaching resources. Other Green Teacher publications to date include five resource books for educators: Greening School Grounds: Creating Habitats for Learning, Teaching About Climate Change: Cool Schools Tackle Global Warming (also published in French), Teaching Green: The Middle Years, Teaching Green: The Elementary Years, and Teaching Green: The High School Years.
