CTI to Share Ideas for Teaching about Energy

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers will share bright, new ideas for teaching and learning about energy at a Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) event from 5:30 - 8:00 PM., Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the EnergyExplorium at McGuire Nuclear Station in Huntersville.

This free, public event, a "Teachers as Scholars" program, features CMS teachers who collaborated on the topic "The Nature of Energy: How We Use and Store It to Power Our Everyday Lives." It will highlight innovative curriculum they developed during a long-term CTI seminar, led by Susan Trammell, professor of physics and optical science at UNC Charlotte.

Sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas and Duke Energy, the program will start with a reception and viewing of the EnergyExplorium’s exhibits from 5:30 - 6:30 PM, followed by presentations and a panel discussion with Trammell and CTI Fellows until 8:00 PM. Space is limited, so registration is recommended.
