October is Energy Awareness Month!

Did you know that October is Energy Awareness Month and what does it have to do with Henrico CTE?  National Energy Awareness Month, aimed at promoting the importance of energy for our sustainability and environmental well-being. This national effort provides an opportunity to help kids understand the concept of energy, and the role energy plays in the world around them. According to the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council website says, “October 1st kicks off National Energy Awareness Month, a time to promote the importance of energy efficiency, discover new ways to become more efficient and reflect on your own energy consumption.” Please visit their website and help kick-off Energy Awareness month.

What does Energy Awareness month have to do with Henrico CTE? Did you know that, according to U.S. Energy and Employment Report,

These facts and the need for thousands of new energy workers have led the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to join several other states and add a 17th Career Cluster, Energy. CTE programs are now able to help with courses designed to get the next generation of energy workers ready for careers in the solar, wind, as well as the traditional energy industries. Henrico CTE will be adding the new Energy Career Cluster as soon as we are able.

Henrico CTE was lucky to be involved with the rollout of VDOE Energy Career Cluster when our award-winning Henrico CTE Now podcast had a series of interviews with energy industry experts.
