  Description Whether motivated by energy security or environmental stability, physicists at all levels must play a role in the scientific literacy shaping the past as we have known it and the future of the world as we should know it. This workshop will open the eyes of practitioners to the vast array of teaching and learning possibilities for classroom application of Physics of Energy as well as illustrate how this curriculum and research has been implemented in the US and Uganda. During the workshop ten laboratories will be executed in groups as well as a final energy competition. All participants will leave with a CD of resources. Together the workshop will weave a coherent common thread of Physics of Energy from mechanical to electrical energy - four devices, thermal to electrical - three devices, solar to electrical - 1 device, and chemical to electrical energy - 2 devices.
