Learn how to become involved with a unique opportunity to engage middle school-aged students in applying science, technology, creativity and teamwork to real world energy challenges in the 2009 Junior Solar Sprint (JSS). Get started with this free workshop for team leaders organized by CET. Presented by Susan Reyes of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA), the workshop will give you all the information you will need to join in the fun! More information about the JSS can be found on NESEA’s website.

All attendees will receive free curriculum materials, including JSS lesson plans and a free kit to build during the workshop. Both veterans and ‘newbees’ to the JSS will be there to share ideas and helpful advice for getting teams together. As an added incentive, food and beverages will be provided and you will have a chance to win a raffle for a photovoltaic panel for one of your model cars! A letter of attendance for professional development will also be provided.
