KEEP Scholarship

A scholarship available to local teachers to attend KEEP – the statewide K-12 Energy Education Program. The teacher earns continuing education credits while learning how to integrate hands-on energy education activities in their classrooms.

New Glarus Utilities provides scholarships to local teachers to attend KEEP – the statewide K-12 Energy Education Program.

KEEP is a 16-hour in-service that helps teachers integrate hands-on energy education activities into their classrooms.  The program also demonstrates how teachers can use energy education to ensure that their students meet Wisconsin academic standards.  The teachers receive continuing education credits for attending KEEP classes.

KEEP makes the sometimes-intimidating topic of energy understandable to students of all ages.  Second grades can learn about the coal mining process as they “find resources” in chocolate chip cookies.  Middle school students can experiment with properties of motors by modeling an electric motor.  High school students can discuss “energy futures” by studying energy trends and new technologies.

Visit the KEEP Web site to learn more.  Interested persons should contact our WPPI Energy representative, Beth Carlson, at (608) 834-4500 or via email.
