Scott Liddicoat, has been selected to represent the Green Bay Area Public Schools and the National Science Foundation Center for Renewable Energy Advanced Technological Education (CREATE) as part of a delegation of educators who will conduct an international learning exchange with Germany in May, 2019.

Participants will research renewable energy and energy storage during the exchange by meeting with technical trade schools, universities, policy makers, and leaders from German industries. Participants will work to conduct job task analyses, and to integrate energy storage technology into existing energy education courses and programs of study in the United States.  The results of the project will be shared through published manuscripts and presentations at national and international conferences.

“Pretty awesome,” said Liddicoat of his selection.  “I get to represent some fine people. The teachers and students I work with at school.  Also the great people I work with through the SolarWise for Schools program at Wisconsin Public Service, and the K-12 Energy Education Program at Stevens Point.  Through this learning exchange I’ll be able to improve the Renewable Energy class I teach at Green Bay Southwest and the teacher training workshops I do. I’m sure I’ll be writing more renewable energy teacher lessons for public consumption, too.  The team I work with in Germany is sure to meet its objectives--to improve energy and renewable energy education in the United States, and serve to provide a quality workforce in this growing sector of the American economy.”

The CREATE Energy Storage project began on July 1, 2018, and will continue through June 30, 2021. The project is funded by the NSF Advanced Technological Education Program, grant award number 1800893.
