CEET Middle School Green Energy 2015 Summer Residential Camp

Imagine a day where you drove your own car without spending a dime from your pocket? A day where you pay just one dollar bill for your monthly electrical energy consumption? Yes, this is what renewable energy resources does!

We have means to achieve this if we make use of the natural resources in an efficient way. Besides being less expensive, these energy resources are eco-friendly. Come and explore the wind and solar energy sources through hands-on activities during the camp!! Participants will get to explore the wind farm technology, work with model homes which are powered by solar voltaic cells and a wind turbine generator. The camp uses inventive & creative thinking to incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math into fun and memorable experiences.
