SUCCEED 2012 Teacher Workshop

Summer Center for Climate, Energy and Environmental Decision-Making

What is the SUCCEED teacher workshop?
The SUCCEED Teacher Workshop is a 2-day program where CMU faculty and students will work with teachers to better understand how much they already know about climate/energy. Our goal is to help teachers incorporate these materials into their curriculum to address issues related to sustainable energy systems and climate change. The SUCCEED program is supported in part by the Leonard Gelfland Center.

When and where is the SUCCEED teacher workshop? How much will I be paid?
The SUCCEED Teacher Workshop runs on July 30 and 31, 2012, Monday and Tuesday, from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. The program takes place on the Carnegie Mellon University campus. All teacher participants will receive 12 hours of Act 48 credit, a stipend of $200, and access to the curriculum generated during the workshop. Additionally, lunches are provided each day. The workshop is limited to 10 participants.

Who can apply?
