NHA is excited to have educators from the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project participating in Clean Currents!
What is NEED?
The NEED Project designs and delivers teacher-tested educational materials, evaluation techniques and tools, recognition of student achievement, and professional development for educators. NEED materials and training programs provide comprehensive, objective information about the scientific concepts of energy and the sources of energy – their use and their impact on the environment, the economy and society.
How is NEED participating in Clean Currents?
NHA is working with the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to offer a special tour of the exhibits at Clean Currents for educators in the Atlanta area.
Educators from 13 schools who are teaching 6th through 12th grade classes on technology, environmental science, physical science, and physics will participate. Part of the tour involves an innovative “careers scavenger hunt.”
The objective is to expose these teachers to the breadth and depth of the waterpower technology.
In addition to the Clean Currents tour, NEED is holding a day-long virtual workshop for the teachers the Saturday before Clean Currents. The October 16 workshop includes a Hydropower 101 overview as well as exposure to a number of hands-on projects for use in the classroom.
