RDCEP's Education Director, Seth Severns, is leading a four-week Energy Engineers workshop with 7th and 8th graders at Melody Elementary school. They're learning how to use Python to display energy data with LEDs. Severns is modeling this workshop so teachers can teach the curriculum on their own.
RDCEP's Education Director, Seth Severns, is leading an Energy Engineers workshop at Corliss High School. Students are learning how to use Python to analyze energy usage data and display it on LEDs. Severns is modeling this workshop so teachers can teach the curriculum on their own.
RDCEP's Education Director, Seth Severns, teaching students at Leland Elementary School how to build simple electric motors using everyday household items.
RDCEP's Education Director, Seth Severns, leads four- to six-week workshops during which he teaches students to use Python to parse energy data and display it on LEDs. The goal is to model this curriculum for teachers so they can teach it on their own. Here, Tashena Chumrley teaches her students at Earle Elementary using this new curriculum.

Congratulations to RDCEP’s education outreach team for obtaining generous support from the Women’s Board to expand their hands-on interactive curriculum Coding and Data Exploration with Smart Lamps. This coding course engages students in programming hands-on “smart lamps” (an internet-connected LED lamp driven by a palm-sized Raspberry Pi microcomputer). We’re very grateful for this funding from the Women’s Board, as it will allow us to build an interactive online curriculum and develop teacher training modules. These online modules will allow Chicago Public Schools teachers to cover some material independently before our team arrives for hands-on work with real devices.
Tonight, Seth Severns, RDCEP's Education Director, trained Chicago public school teachers on our Energy Engineers curriculum at Northeastern Illinois University's Center for College Access and Success (CCAS).
