The fun, exciting, and FREE workshop is coming to OMSI to give educators the materials and curricula needed to bring Renewable Energy into their classrooms with interactive and hands-on activities. KidWind workshops lead educators through lesson plans and activities that you can implement in your own classrooms. A Wind 101 presentation and a discussion about the challenges and obstacles to renewable energy in the Pacific NW today help to round out your experience and help to create not only better educators but more informed community leaders as well. You can watch a brief 90-second video on how the KidWind Teacher Workshops work here.

It has held teacher workshops in over 40 U.S. states as well as in Canada, Costa Rica, Chile, Ireland, Taiwan, Australia, and the Caribbean.
