Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to participate in Energy 101, a free, 5-week series that will teach you about the energy systems that shape our lives.

About Energy 101
Learn about the energy systems that shape our lives. This free, five-week educational series invites students, faculty, staff, and members of the community to expand their understanding of the systems that are shaping our energy futures through weekly mini-lectures, small and large group discussions, case studies, and interactive and applied exercises. Participants should plan to attend all five evenings, as the information shared in our weekly sessions will overlap, connect, and build over the course of the series. A consistent cohort of participants will allow for deeper group discussions and collaborative case study work, so we hope you will join us for all sessions! We’ll have light snacks to keep you energized every week.
