TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Renewable energy is my passion and I have presented this subject to kids for over 20 years in hands-on educational workshops during school visits. I have written two books on solar and one on nuclear energy. My home is solar powered, the systems built by myself. I also write for kids with works for in science fiction, early readers, and baby board books out. Visit my website: michaeljdaley.com for more details. I do school presentations for both solar and writing frequently, also residencies.

MY TEACHING STYLE

hands-on experience based learning love to stimulate exploratory thinking engage in question and answer with students positive and reinforcing attitude toward making mistakes as part of the learning process (scientific method) when exploring a new and unfamiliar subject
