The ‘face’ of North Dakota is changing rapidly with the expansion of our prairie energy industry. The North Dakota Geographic Alliance (NDGA) and Prairie Public Education Services will sponsor the Summer Geography Institute that will focus on current topics and specific impacts the energy industry has on advancements in technology, green energy, and the economy of North Dakota as well as the impact on our environment, communities, schools, and children.
Attendees of this institute will explore how educators and other professionals teach the regional and global issues of energy use, their environmental impact and how these topics can be easily integrated into all areas of the curriculum. The theme of this institute is current, relevant, and statewide. These events are happening in your backyard launching North Dakota into the global marketplace.
