A recent professional development workshop attended by about 20 teachers in Ventura County, Calif., included lessons on energy and the environment. Educators say the workshop offered tips for engaging students in classroom lessons on topics, such as solar energy. "This would be fun to do in the classroom with what little light you would have first, and then go outside and do it again and show the difference with the amount of solar energy," said middle-school teacher Linda Thayer-Gaboury of an experiment in which sunlight was turned into electricity.
