Attention Teachers: Spark Your Knowledge of Electricity

Schoolteachers interested in the electric industry have the opportunity next summer to learn more about energy, how it is generated and how it is supplied to all of us who use it. Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, the power supplier to 18 of Colorado’s 22 electric co-ops, will bring together educators who teach grades 4-12 for a three-day learning session in Westminster June 18-20.

The program is open and free to all teachers who are electric cooperative members, teach at schools that are co-op members or teach students whose parents are co-op members in Tri-State’s service area. (Educators outside of electric co-op territory are welcome to apply, and funding will be sought on their behalf.)

Thanks to the support of Tri-State’s member cooperatives, there is no cost to educators in the Tri-State service area who participate. Most expenses, including lodging, meals, transportation and conference materials, are provided. The program is sponsored in cooperation with the National Energy Education Development Project, which works with the education community to promote an energy-conscious and educated society by helping deliver multi-sided energy education programs.
