LEC Teacher’s Seminar
Registration is open for the Lignite Energy Council’s annual Teacher Education Seminar: Energy, Economics and Environment. The four-day seminar gives elementary, middle and high school teachers in North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana and Iowa a first-hand look at North Dakota’s fifth largest industry, lignite mining and related energy production. The seminar will be held June 12-15, at Bismarck State College’s National Energy Center of Excellence in Bismarck, N.D.
The seminar provides instruction on these topics and more: history, geology, land reclamation, environmental protection, economics of the lignite industry, the need for more workers, energy conservation, and transmission. Besides the classroom instruction and the tours, teachers will take home handouts, videos, coal samples and activities that can be used in the classroom. Teachers who attend and complete a lesson plan can choose from one of three North Dakota institutions from which to receive two semester graduate credits: University of North Dakota, North Dakota State University or Minot State University.
