Professional Development Training


At a Solar One Professional Development workshop, Solar One educators train teachers on Green Design Lab’s hands-on activities in Energy, Water, Materials, Air and Food. We also train teachers on ways they can work with their students and the rest of the school community to conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprint.

Every workshop includes lesson planning time for integrating content into coursework, standards alignment (NYSSLS, Next Gen, etc.), and discussions on best practices for using GDL as a tool for highly effective teaching. Teachers receive detailed instructional guides for the activities covered.

See below for a list of upcoming Professional Development workshops in NYC and beyond. For NYC public school teachers, Solar One offers free training sessions through the NYC Solar Schools Program. Click on the links below to register for workshops, or email us.

“Making batteries, testing building materials, making the thermal water heater– all of the activities were great. This was, by far, the best PD I’ve ever attended. This had activities that are so relevant and applicable, and also things kids will enjoy doing. I will integrate some of these into my classes next year.”
