Mike Arquin talks with New Mexican teachers at lunch, KidWind REcharge Academy 2022

“This is really exciting,” Arquin noted after he spoke with New Mexican teachers. “In all my years doing this, I’ve never seen a state’s teachers all get together and be so motivated. It’s really exciting to see.”

KidWind held its 2022 REcharge Academy from July 18-21 at Santa Fe Community College in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  (You can read our article about REcharge Academy here)

REcharge Academy is an event for educators from around the country to come together and learn about renewable energy. The goal is to send these educators back to their classrooms with new projects and lessons for their students. 

A large contingent of New Mexican teachers attended REcharge Academy, and they were so impressed by KidWind and the week of training, that they got together to plan to launch KidWind competitions statewide.

“This is really exciting,” Arquin noted after he spoke with New Mexican Teachers. “In all my years doing this, I’ve never seen a state’s teachers all get together and be so motivated. It’s really exciting to see.”

Brittney Van Der Werff of New Mexico EPSCoR, and Remi Pangle, Executive Director of REpowering Schools were both on hand for the entire week to share their knowledge with the educators as well as provide them with resources for the classrooms.
