Additional details and the workshop application are available on the ATEEC Web site at http://www.ateec.org/profdev/seet/next.htm.
The primary goal of the SEET Technology Workshop project is to build the capacity of energy technicians to meet the challenges of sustainable energy in the 21st century workplace through ten-day intensive annual workshops at research facilities. Eligible workshop participants are energy technology instructors at upper level high school and community college levels. Workshop content experts will share knowledge about research advances in energy technology, requirements for technicians, and implications for a sustainable energy future. Instructors who participate in the workshops will be connected and supported by an active online network and workshop follow-up support. Sustainable energy knowledge will be further extended to additional technology instructors through events coordinated by workshop participants in their home communities.
The 2011 workshop will focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. The workshop will provide hands-on, inquiry-based lab experiences; take-home equipment and training; and site visits and field work assisted by partners of the hosting institutions.
