Energy in the Classroom

Teachers can earn free professional development credits

Each summer, Platte-Clay offers the opportunity for local educators to attend a professional development course to learn all about how to bring energy in today’s classroom.

Energize your classroom with exciting topics and free energy educational tools! Educators in the middle and high school grades with a background in science, math, agricultural science and building trades are ideal candidates for this course.

Although first-come, first served, we ask teachers to make a firm commitment to attend the class: we don’t want anyone to miss out. The class consists of energy topics including energy basics, power generation, transmission, and energy efficiency. Learn from industry experts and earn professional development credits.

Platte-Clay Electric Cooperative, with support from NW Electric Power Cooperative, covers all the expenses for the course for a teacher working at a school in or nearby the Platte-Clay Cooperative service area.

The 2023 course will be held August 1-2 at Courtyard by Marriott Jefferson City, Mo.
