Enrichment Sign-Up

How do engineers harness the Earth's resources to generate electric power? In this enrichment, you will learn about and build several types of energy conversion devices, including a human-powered battery, a hand crank electric generator, and a Stirling engine which converts the heat of a candle into electricity which you can use to charge your phone! All the while, you will learn about the most important energy opportunities and challenges which we face in the 21st century. (This enrichment includes a field trip to learn about cutting-edge energy technology at the National Renewable Energy Lab)
