Join Inside Education and a group of like-minded colleagues for an inspiring day that will energize your teaching! This is your chance to experience on-the-ground innovations, learn how Alberta is leading the way with energy efficiency, conservation and action on climate change while building a toolbox full of ideas for your classroom.

These one day programs will each feature an overview of electricity and climate change from Alberta experts, a tour of a local renewable energy site, and a hands-on education workshop where we will share ideas and resources that you can use the very next day!

This full day program will run approximately 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

On this program you will:

  • Hear from an expert panel of guests who will share insight on Alberta’s changing electricity landscape
  • Tour local initiatives that are leading the way in energy innovation and technology (Western Canada largest solar installation in Leduc, LEED & net-zero buildings, solar & wind farms and more!)
  • Gain tons of hands-on activities, lesson ideas and resources that will inspire your teaching
  • Build a local network of like-minded teachers
