Energy Education, Student Stars and a little TLC for Mainers

Welcome to Maine's conversation about energy education and what we like to call "TLC", that is: Training, Licensing and Certifications.  We will include info on where Mainers can get the specialized education they need to work in our new energy economy, as well as showcasing student and class energy projects. K-12 science teachers are encouraged to share lesson plans here, and we invite university students working on energy research projects to post their works here.  Don't forget to send photos!
