Energy Insight for 5th Graders

We're looking for 100 teachers to participate in a program that teaches the importance of energy and natural resources.

Ron Rioux, APS district energy conservation coordinator, is looking for 100 fifth grade teachers or fourth/fifth combination classes for a joint project with PNM, the National Energy Foundation and APS.

The program, which will kick off in the spring, is designed to teach the importance of energy, natural resources and environmental resources, and gives each participating student’s family energy efficient technologies to install at their homed.

The program is easy to implement and also reinforces learning requirements with relevant content and inquiry based activities.

If you're interested, the National Energy Foundation will to your school and do a 45-minute presentation for students. Teachers will receive a selection of supplemental instructional materials and optional lessons (all correlated to state learning standards) that may be used in connection with the presentation.

If you’re interested and would like to participate please contact Ron Rioux at rioux@aps.edu or call 765-5950 x342 before Jan. 24th
