Unique Teaching for a Sustainable World
As a teacher, you inspire your student to change the world. Project ReCharge can help lead the way to a sustainable future. Project ReCharge provides educators like you with the curriculum, knowledge and resources you need for an interactive energy education that inspires your students to become energy detectives focused on saving your school money through energy efficiency proposals. Project ReCharge focuses on real world learning and application that has measurable impact on students, the environment and the community at large.
Participating Project ReCharge teachers receive extensive hands-on Professional Development training on the lessons and activities covered in the curriculum.

Who Should Apply?
Middle school and high school science, technology, engineering or math teachers or educators involved in environmental science programs with a passion for sustainability. Our lessons can be tailored to the appropriate grade level for younger or older audiences.
What is the Duration of the Program?
Teachers will be required to complete 50 hours of Professional Development during one academic year. They will be given the entire curriculum that meets educational teaching standards, training and all the materials and resources necessary to teach the program. Teachers may qualify to receive a $1,000 stipend or 3 UNR graduate credits upon completion of the program.
The Professional Development is typically launched during the summer and continues periodically over the course of one academic year. We will be piloting alternative training schedules during the 2019/2020 school year.
The Project ReCharge team provides you support long after your initial training year and throughout your career as a STEM teacher.
What Role Will You Play?
You will inspire your students with the Project ReCharge curriculum that consists of five separate units of hands-on inquiry-based lessons and activities focused on energy generation, consumption and efficiency.
Teachers are required to instruct and supervise their students as they write sustainability proposals that offer ways for their schools to reduce energy costs and save their schools money. Assistance with these proposals is provided by Envirolution and numerous STEM and energy professionals in the community.
