Teacher’s Renewable Energy Workshop in Nassau

Teacher’s Renewable Energy Workshop in Nassau

The Ministry of Education in the Bahamas and the Organization of American States (OAS) through its Department of Sustainable Development to host a two-day teacher workshop in Nassau on August 21-22, 2013 to teach educators the importance of teaching about renewable energy and energy conservation in order to enhance the current academic curriculum. The workshop also actively involves educators in the advocacy of cleaner and more sustainable energy development in the Bahamas. The attendees include primary and secondary school teachers from New Providence and the Family Islands.

The workshop will provide educators a unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the science behind renewable energy and energy conservation. Participants will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to effectively incorporate lessons about renewable energy and energy conservation sciences into classroom curricula.

The workshop will be led by KidWind instructor Keith Etheridge, who has taught thousands of teachers and students about wind energy and has facilitated teacher workshops on renewable energy and energy conservation sciences across the United States, as well as in the U.S. Virgin Islands. KidWind is an internationally recognized leader of clean energy education. Over the past seven years, KidWind has held hundreds of teacher workshops in more than 40 U.S. states, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The workshop, partially funded by the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) Caribbean Initiative, was implemented through the OAS’s pilot program, the Caribbean Energy Education and Awareness Programme (CEEAP) under the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP) and in close collaboration with the KidWind Project.
