Event description

Description

This year we will be holding a four-day Academy in partnership with Coastal Resource Center at URI, the GEMSnet Program, WINDWINRI, RealJobsRI and the North Kingstown RI Chamber. the 2019 REcharge Academy will focus on wind power, specifically the future of offshore wind. You can plan on packed days learning about the politics, technologies and economics of wind energy coupled with a range of engaging activities you can use with your students around wind energy. On the last day we will take a ferry out to tour of America’s first offshore wind farm near Block Island, RI.

Scholarships are being announced on a rolling basis - it's never to early to sign up! Read more about the program below or sign up on the Register page.

Now in its 11th year, the REcharge Academy is our flagship educator training program focused around renewable energy. The intensive training blends lectures from experts and tours of energy facilities with replicable hands-on K-12 lessons to give educators content as well as context. A REcharge Academy combines materials from REcharge Labs, WindWise, KidWind, NEED, WhiteBox Learning and Vernier, as well as many other materials we find applicable and useful in the classroom. To get a sense of what to expect, and to review post-training evaluation results, download the 2017 Report and the 2018 Synopsis.

Over the past 11 years over 400 educators of all types have attended our REcharge Academies from all over the world and have impacted thousands of students and educators all over the globe.

Once an educator attends a REcharge Academy, they are considered a REcharge Instructor for life and become part of our extended family! Instructors may just incorporate lessons and curriculum into their own classrooms, or they may go further and work with local schools and districts to share the resources they’ve explored or train other teachers in wind and solar.

Our REcharge Instructors are critical actors who can help educate the world about about renewable energy. They also help our team develop and test new materials and help KidWind hold over 35 KidWind Challenges. We estimate that each year our network of Instructors train at least 1,000 educators and impact 30,000 students through workshops and outreach events.

Here's what past Instructors have to say

"Great model that I am working to get more comfortable with - less instruction and more rolling up the sleeves and getting to work. I am now more comfortable with adding maker activities to my courses."

"There was so much great information and opportunities to learn and experience. This training will prepare you to integrate renewable energy into your program and you will have a great time doing it!"

"I really loved the active mix. The staff was terrific as were the other attendees. The mix of people and backgrounds really added some depth to the learning which was a happy surprise. I was thrilled to get some real content and concrete hands on materials."

“Get on the team!”

“Absolutely tons of fun, information, and once in a lifetime opportunity!”

“Amazing and most applicable workshop I have been to in a long time!”
