The NYC DOE Office of Sustainability and the STEM Department are partnering for the 3rd year of the NYC Solar Schools Education Program. DOE is working with the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) on a mayoral initiative to install a combined 100 MW of solar photovoltaic capacity on city-owned buildings, per goals outlined in OneNYC, New York City’s plan for sustainability and resiliency.

All NYC DOE Middle School teachers are invited to attend the NYC Solar Schools Professional Learning workshops. Please note that workshops take place during school hours from 9:00 am- 3:00 pm.

All participating teachers will be provided with the training, curriculum, standards alignment, and other resources they need to integrate solar content and activities into their coursework. Materials toolkits will be provided, and teachers will receive CTLE credits for attending.



About Solar One and the Solar Schools Education Program

Solar One’s K-12 curriculum, The Green Design Lab (GDL), is a STEM-focused, interdisciplinary sustainability program that provides students with hands-on experiential learning. The NYC Solar Schools workshop includes a combination of hands-on activities that give context for why solar is important – such as an introduction to power plants, fossil fuels, and climate change – and explore the science and applications of solar energy through building mini-solar systems, field studies, and experiments.

A key goal of this program is to connect the solar installations on school buildings to curriculum, allowing teachers to use solar as a tool for students to learn about renewable energy and sustainability, and as a catalyst for STEM learning. This program is FREE for interested teachers; all costs will be paid for by DOE through funding from DCAS.
