Free NYC Solar Schools PD Opportunity

NYC Solar Schools PD Opportunity
The NYC DOE Office of Sustainability and the STEM Department are partnering to launch 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. 
 
A key goal of the 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. As part of this program, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in a 3 day professional development training with Solar One- a non-profit Green Energy Education organization.
The Solar One PD workshops are interactive, leading teachers through hands-on activities so that they have the opportunity to learn by doing. This program will be delivered FREE to interested teachers; all costs will be paid for by DOE through funding from DCAS. 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.
