Teachers, PNM team up for energy lessons

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – How do you teach kids science in an interesting way? That’s exactly what teachers tried to figure out Tuesday.

The teachers got a lesson in energy, courtesy of PNM and a national project called NEED.

The focus of the project is to teach students about renewable energy and the future of energy.

Teachers were given a hands-on lesson that they will take back to their students to make the subject easier to understand.

PNM partnered with NEED to help bring this project into classrooms and it is covering the cost of  training kits for teachers.

Another workshop like the one that took place Tuesday is planned for Thursday in Santa Fe.
