Workshop Lesson Plans

Sustainability is paramount to the work of Argonne. As a natural segway to educational outreach, the Sustainability Workshop for Middle School Teachers was conceived, designed and implemented. The goals of this workshop included increasing knowledge and awareness of alternative energy technologies, their advantages and limitations; the key issues and impacts of technologies related to climate change; to extend the resources of sustainability and to encourage energy literacy.

The teachers were asked to synthesize their experiences and knowledge gained in the Workshop into a useable lesson plan. The lesson plans presented here are the result of the Workshop.
