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 (Common Core, 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.
Solar One’s Professional Development workshops are interactive, leading teachers through the hands-on activities so that they have the opportunity to learn by doing!

100% of teachers surveyed said they would recommend the program to other schools.
“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.”
