Helping Students Protect the Environment and Live Well -
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17; 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 12;  9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Center for Outdoor Learning / Hinton, Iowa

Explore with your students the products Americans use daily - “the stuff of life.” These products have a life cycle: They are extracted, transported, produced, used and disposed of around the globe. Study how this “stuff” is a primary source of environmental problems and examine how this relates to life satisfaction. Course content is real and relevant. Materials introduced are interdisciplinary and classroom-ready, designed so your students learn essential skills and concepts from the Iowa Core as well as NGSS Science and Engineering Practices.

GET ENERGIZED, IOWA! RECOGNIZED

Get Energized, Iowa!, a project of the UNI CEEE and Psychology Department, was recently recognized as a 2015 Landmark Case Study by Tools of Change, a Canadian project that provides frameworks and guidance for community-based social marketing programs. Carole Yates, CEEE program manager, and Jack Yates professor of psychology, ran the 2012 competition among four small Iowa communities. All communities reduced electricity and gas usage, and in 2013 reduced energy use even more after the competition ended. The Yates presented a webinar for Tools of Change on Feb. 2 that will be on the Tools of Change web site in the near future.
