TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 50 teachers have contributed to the research and development of the hands-on activities and content delivery suitable for enriching the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics learning experiences of elementary, middle, and high school students. CURENT, Center for Ultra-Wide-Area Resilient Electric Energy Transmission Networks, is a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center that is jointly supported by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy. A collaboration between academia, industry, and national laboratories, CURENT is led by the University of Tennessee,

MY TEACHING STYLE

Knoxville. The Center is partnered with Northeastern University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Tuskegee University. With CURENT’s expertise in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programming, expanding their own educational offerings to K-12 teachers and students was a logical next step. Our Vision is to inspire a new generation of electric power and energy systems engineering leaders with global perspectives and diverse backgrounds. CURENT and its partners share a common goal to develop outreach programs that will provide multi-disciplinary, team-driven, and systems-oriented educational opportunities for K-12 students. In 2011, the Center applied to the National Science Foundation to support a research experience for teachers (RET) program to develop highly innovative curricula focused on energy literacy and electrical energy transmission system analysis. The resulting RET curricula collected in this book demonstrates a paradigm of immersive, active-learning environments that support deeper understanding of energy concepts, develop positive student identities, and support an appreciation of science practices and engineering design. The content is designed to mature students by awakening interests and curiosities to explore twenty-first century problems such as energy poverty, and empowering them to discover and design their solutions. The RET program is also coveted for its alignment with our vision to revitalize student motivation to pursue careers in power and energy.
