Imagine the day when you can drive your car without spending a dime? A day when you pay one dollar for your monthly electrical energy consumption? Yes, this is what renewable energy resources do! 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 this year’s Green Energy Residential Summer Camp. Participants will get to explore wind farm technology and work with model homes, which are powered by solar voltaic cells. The camp uses inventive and creative thinking to incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math into fun and memorable experiences.
