GREEN STEM: Energy Conservation & Green Building
Teachers will visit energy efficient buildings and learn about Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) standards. They will tour Argonne’s LEED rated building and visit additional facilities that contain on-site renewable energy systems, including solar panels, wind turbines and more. A second stop on the tour is to be determined.
Additionally, teachers will learn about emerging careers in the field of sustainability.
Back at SCARCE, teachers will get the opportunity to ride the Energy Bike, which SCARCE can bring to their schools for STEM activities and programs. This is a fast paced workshop that is jam-packed with resources, activities, and ideas for the classroom.
