Climate Change & Energy Education: 2014 Summer Institute

August 4, 2014 @ 9:00 am - August 6, 2014 @ 5:00 pm


This is the Midwest’s climate change education event of the year! Come to the 2014 Summer Institute to connect with educators who care about quality teaching and who want to bring climate change and energy concepts to their educational setting. This is for formal and non-formal educators of grades 3-12

With the help of expert guest scientists and educators, hands-on engaging activities and a beautiful setting with a model demonstration center, the 2014 Summer Institute for Climate and Energy Education will provide educators with: 

  • Important climate change and energy concepts and confidence to share these concepts
  • Awareness of the standards (including Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core) that support climate change and energy concepts
  • Skills to make learning experiential and to take students outside
  • A framework for effective place based climate change and energy education

We promise you will leave the Institute revitalized, inspired, and with new resources including a copy of the Minnesota’s Changing Climate or Experience Energy curriculum and accompanying resources.

20 CEUs will be awarded. 2 Graduate Credits are also available through Hamline University at additional cost and with a brief reflection paper.
