Primarily elementary and middle school. We issue an open invitation to
schools and then register them on a first come basis until we are full. We
get maybe 2 to 3 high school groups, not many.

Job Description:

Renewable Energy Day is Friday, October 3, 2014 at the Mississippi
Agricultural and Forestry Museum on Lakeland Drive in Jackson. An annual
event sponsored by the Energy & Natural Resources Division of the
Mississippi Development Authority, over 900 elementary and secondary
students are in attendance. Students visit learning stations with their
teachers and volunteer escorts; these stations are conducted by various
agencies, non-profits and other institutions and companies.

As a presenter, you will prepare a 10 to 12 minute basic presentation on
wind energy; presentations that are interactive and involve the students
are most useful. We will provide the source materials and other related
information. The presenter must be flexible and adapt their presentation
for both elementary and middle school groups. You can expect to see between
8 to 9 groups of students. You should plan to arrive by 8 am the day of the
event, set-up your station with presentations beginning around 9 am and
concluding shortly before noon. An educational stipend, along with a
continental breakfast, lunch, a t-shirt are provided. Please contact Gayle
Sims at gsims at mississippi.org or 601.359.6612 for additional information.

Hi Betsy.

This is Gayle over at the Energy office. We are hosting our annual
Renewable Energy Day for over 1000 students at the AG Museum and I need a
science contact. Hope you can help, I'm running out of options.

Do you know a retired or available teacher that would be interested in
working for just half a day, and doing 6 to 8 presentations on wind energy.
The pay is $160 and I provide the learning materials. Renewable Energy Day
is Friday October 3, 2014.

Hope you know someone. Thanks!!!
