Director William Wood and associate director John Kruggel of the Center for Economic Education (CEE) recently held their first Econ Day Camp for middle and high school teachers across the commonwealth.

The camp was designed to provide hands-on and engaging methods and activities to bring economic content to life in the classrooms and featured guest speakers and topics such as the economics of natural disasters, renewable energy and natural gas vs. petroleum.

The day camp is just one of several new formats being tried out by the center to reach more teachers. The center has also introduced “Econ After Hours,” a 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. event in Harrisonburg to combine teacher training with networking opportunities.
