Change the world around you by taking your teaching career to the next level!
Whether its teaching about energy efficiency, climate change or social equity – educators play a crucial role in molding children to be part of an ever-changing world. Empowered educators have proven to not only lead by example but also lay the groundwork for the generational shift we need today.

As recommended by EERMC, we have utilized the NEED energy guides to develop the energy training section of our sustainability curriculum for teachers. The National Energy Education Development Project designs and delivers energy education programs and these guides are available for teachers for free on the NEED website.
GBRI’s Energy Training for teachers consists of five major sections:
What is Energy?
Why Do We Need Energy?
Who Is Affected & What Are the Current Compilations of Energy Production and Use.
Where Can the Impacts of Current Energy Production Methods Be Seen
How Can We Improve Energy Production and Usage.
