COLUMBIA, Mo.-The University of Missouri Extension is “teaching teachers” about energy efficiency. The “Energy in Today’s Classroom” workshop is in its third year and offers teachers a chance to learn about topics they can pass on to students such as energy production, sources, economics, and efficiency.
Teachers across the state involved in both science and agriculture have utilized the workshop. Amanda Jackson, a middle school teacher from Macon County praised the growth of ideas the workshop can spark, stating the program allows teachers to provide a framework so students “can start developing their own ideas, which is what will keep our energy rolling.”
Over 60 teachers were involved in the workshop for more information those interested can contact Brian Robertson, extension associate and instructor in agricultural systems management, at 573-882-3915.
