Our commitment to education is not only catered to education within the school system, but is far reaching within our project communities.
Our efforts incorporate a variety of opportunities to enlighten and educate in many areas outside of the classroom.
Being involved with education through schools and community outreach programs has allowed CPV Educates to interact with educators and administrators to better understand needs in area schools. In addition, students have been able to interact with industry professionals to
better prepare for their future.
We have been invited to participate in various events outside of the classroom curriculum. Our participation in those events are highlighted as follows:
CPV Educates has participated in many high school and college career fairs. This is a great opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career in the energy industry to speak with energy professionals, learn about jobs in the energy industry, what steps can be taken to pursue a career in this field and to network with industry professionals. We provide suggestions as to how various occupations can be incorporated into the energy field.
Principal for a Day
CPV Educates allows elementary educators, administrators and industry professionals to interact and foster relationships between the educational and business communities. We offer students the opportunity to join with energy professionals who share different types of skills they need to be successful in the work force within the energy field. CPV Educates has assisted in Principal for a Day events by providing various activities to enhance the program, by acting as judges for science fair projects while interacting with students as they describe and demonstrate their projects, providing presentations and discussions about energy and electricity, and we’ve even demonstrated how construction equipment works.
CPV Educates has taken part in a summer workshop series offered by a public library. During this 4-week program, children in the community were introduced to energy and electricity. Each week children made crafts to accompany the lesson taught. Children participated in scavenger hunts, games and created their own electric generation center mobile using recycled materials and craft supplies.
In partnership with the administration and eighth grade students of Colonia Middle School in Woodbridge, NJ, CPV Educates is bringing our energy curriculum to the Friday’s Friends program which serves district students with special needs. The Friday's Friends program was recognized by the New Jersey School Boards' Association as an innovator in special education.
