Energy Education in the Classroom

If you live or teach in an area served by Arrowhead Electric Cooperative, Inc. or Great River Energy, we have an excellent opportunity for you. Great River Energy and its 28 member cooperatives once again will offer Energy Education in the Classroom.

This teacher’s course is part of the popular Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program (KEEP), which has received positive feedback from teachers since it began in 1997. KEEP and faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point will share their exceptional energy education tools to help teachers easily build energy education into their curriculum.

The course will be held in early August at Great River Energy in Maple Grove, Minn., in one of the states most talked about energy efficient buildings.

  • Great River Energy will provide $420 scholarships to teachers who live or teach in an area served by Great River Energy
  • Teacher’s will pay $75 on the first day of class, which will cover 1 graduate credit from UWSP and all materials (reimbursed to the attending Cook County teacher by Arrowhead Electric Cooperative, Inc.)
  • Minnesota teachers will need to apply for reciprocity (a very quick and easy online process)
  •  Teachers will pay for lodging and travel costs (reimbursed to the attending Cook County teacher by Arrowhead Electric Cooperative, Inc.)
