Energy Educators Institute

Each July Santee Cooper sponsors the Energy Educators Institute, a graduate level course for certified South Carolina K-12 teachers and administrators accredited through Charleston Southern University.

Participants explore the scientific concepts of energy, its sources, and use and impact on the environment, economy and society. A real-world understanding of the power and purpose of electricity is learned through presentations by energy experts, discussions, field experiences and hands-on activities. Teachers complete the institute armed with materials relevant to the curriculum and correlated to state standards.

This three-week, interactive and interdisciplinary course requires a four-day residential stay at Santee Cooper's Wampee Conference Center on Lake Moultrie in Pinopolis. Although a tranquil setting, it proves to be the perfect place to build professional relationships and participate in a diverse learning experience. During the first and third week of the institute, participants will interact and complete assignments online. The second week of the course is spent onsite at Santee Cooper's Wampee Conference Center.

The Lineworkers' Rodeo is designed to showcase a lineworkers’ skills and talent in a fun and safe environment. It's also intended to build camaraderie among the lineworkers and strengthen their knowledge and ability in the areas of safety, teamwork and productivity.

The rodeo is open to anyone who is or was a qualified practicing lineworker employed by Santee Cooper, an electric cooperative, or an electric municipality of South Carolina.

The 2019 rodeo will have two divisions: Santee Cooper and SC Cooperative/Municipal. There will be two levels of competition within each division: journeyman and apprentice. In order to compete as an apprentice, the lineworker must have fewer than five years of line experience.

The rodeo has become an event that attracts lineworkers, their families, and their friends from across the state. Vendors from all over the U.S. have helped with the rodeo's success by sponsoring the individual events and providing the materials and awards for their events. Family activities also make the rodeo fun and exciting for all ages.

We look forward to seeing you all at the 2019 Lineworkers’ rodeo!
