Teacher Advisory Council

Energy is a small but growing part of K–12 education. Curricula that use the principles and practices of STEM are providing opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school students to design solutions to problems of immediate practical and societal importance. Participants explore how strategic connections both within and outside classrooms and schools might catalyze new avenues of teacher preparation and professional development, integrated curriculum development, and more comprehensive assessment of knowledge, skills, and attitudes about energy in the K–12 curriculum. CEEF TAC will assist the staff and Board of Directors to plan and evaluate academic programs, initiatives, and recommendations that can be most effectively implemented in schools and classrooms and offer guidance about how CEEF can best communicate with the educator community.
