*you are welcome to join us for 1 day or both days - program content will be similar but with different experts and tours!
Take advantage of this opportunity to get to know the energy resources outside your front door!
Northwestern Alberta and Northeastern BC are epicenters of energy development that have experienced tremendous growth and continue to do so as our demand for energy increases nationally and globally.
With everything from renewable sources including wind and solar to alternative energy sources like methanol and hydrogen to oil and natural gas development, the Peace Region is a perfect place to expand your knowledge of the energy sector and its connection to the environment, society, and economy.
You will hear from local experts and tour local energy developments to ask questions that matter most to you and your students. This isn’t a sit-and-listen ProD, we will be on the bus and in the community gaining firsthand experiences to advance energy education in the classroom.
Like all Inside Education programs, this teacher PD will be completely no-cost, including lunch and a travel subsidy OR supply teacher subsidy! The program is open to teachers, education students, career counselors, and school administrators in the area who want to enrich their knowledge about local energy and natural resource topics!
