Summer Teacher Institute 2014

Monday, June 23, 2014 to Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Logan Arts Center, University of Chicago

The 2014 Summer Teacher Institue brought together a diverse set of teachers from grades K-16 to discuss "Energy & the Global Environment: Science, History, Poltics." This year's institute incorporated perspectives from the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities to examine how concerns over energy scarcity and energy sustainability can be translated into creative classroom instruction. Susanne Wengle (Political Science) discussed "Energy and Politics in Russia and the Former Soviet Union." Other topics included fracking, sustainable design, and teaching demos on steam and solar energy.
