Science teachers from across the state will convene at UNC-Chapel Hill to examine current energy technologies and to consider the future of the U.S. electric grid. The Energy Literacy Fellows Program is funded by the Duke Energy Foundation.
About the Energy Literacy Fellows Program
This year-long professional development program will showcase current energy science, technologies and careers to enhance Energy Literacy Fellows’ ability to deliver energy-related content, conduct STEM-based activities and promote STEM career opportunities to students. Fellows will interact with diverse scientists, engineers and industry representatives to receive up-to-date, curriculum-relevant content and engage in hands-on, inquiry-based activities designed to support learning about the science of energy.
