Illinois State University has designed and implemented a Smart Grid for Schools program, which offers K-12 students the opportunity to learn about Smart Grid technology. Smart technologies are currently being rolled out by utility companies across the state, so now is a great time for students to learn how their electrical grid works. The program addresses Next Generation Science Standards as well as Common Core Standards in mathematics and language arts.
Smart Grid for Schools training is required, and there is a stipend for attending the training. (If you attended training in the summer of 2017 or more recently, you do not need to attend training again.) You must register in advance. To register for this training session , we would need Name, Contact Information, School Name, Grade Level and Subject taught. Please follow the link provided below:
