For Educators

INTRODUCTION

The Oklahoma Wind Power Initiative has created a curriculum guide for those educators that are interested in implementing wind energy and other renewables into their classroom.  Each topic has an introduction, teacher discussion questions, and student activities.  This guide is meant to be a base where educators can take ideas from it and expand upon them to cater to their own classes.  Keep looking for updates and new materials as we will be updating the guide with new activities and information.  If you have any questions, please contact us at (405) 325-8870.
