Abstract

This panel session will highlight collaboration between power systems and education researchers to produce interactive power and energy curriculum materials for upper elementary and middle school students and teachers. The materials are being developed as part of the NSF-funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid project. We will discuss how the knowledge and expertise of power researchers, curriculum specialists, classroom teachers, and students have been utilized to produce lessons that are both technically and pedagogically sound. Methods of dissemination will also be discussed, such as direct involvement with students and teachers in their classrooms, presentations at conferences for teachers of mathematics and science, and implementation of the materials through teacher workshops.
