Teaching the World about Wind

Wind power is quickly becoming one of the most prominent renewable energy sources in the United States. Yet many holes still remain in the public understanding of wind and factual information can be hard to find. That’s why the WindSenators Education Network is so important. WindSenators will provide states with knowledgeable, experienced wind energy educators that can help others get the tools and information they need to teach the public about wind energy. Think about it: a single training of 30 teachers can impact over a thousand students, having an exponential influence in the community.

This year, we are looking for another 30 teachers who are motivated to improve wind energy education in their region. The WindSenators training is a unique opportunity to develop your own knowledge of wind energy science while also learning how to use our curriculum and educational materials to teach about wind in K-12 classrooms. If you want to become an expert about wind energy, and you are ready to share this knowledge with teachers and students in your region, apply to become a WindSenator today!

Take a look at the WindSenators Training Program to find out more about what a WindSenator does and what the training itself will be like.
