High school teacher attends Energy Institute

Curran at U.W. Madison

Last month DeForest Area High School science teacher Dan Curran attended the Energy Institute for Educators, a teacher workshop hosted by the Wisconsin Energy Institute on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus.

Held July 19-21th, the Energy Institute for Educators is a three-day professional development program offering teachers the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in energy research and to discover practical tools and materials for teaching students the fundamentals of energy and sustainable energy systems.

During the institute, Curran toured UW–Madison research labs and field sites, learning directly from the scientists and researchers working on sustainable biofuels, solar energy, microgrids, and other areas of clean energy research.

The Wisconsin Energy Institute (WEI) is the collaborative home of energy research and education on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus.
