The topics of energy resources and sustainability are growing in importance and relevance for our students across grade levels. Unfortunately the information presented in the media can be quite confusing. As teachers we need to have an accurate understanding of the origin, location, and quantity of fossil fuel
resources, how electricity is generated, and the state of alternative energy research, so that we as teachers can confidently incorporate energy in to our curriculum at all grade levels.
Guest lecturer: Roger N. Anderson, Geologist, Columbia University
Dr. Anderson will focus on electric power, mainly from a utility standpoint, with a focus on NYC and NY - power
generation/sources /distribution/market/bottlenecks, etc. and efficient use - both from the supplier and consumer ends.
