Explore the science and technology behind Oklahoma’s fastest-growing energy sector, wind and solar power. Students will be introduced to the various forms of energy, focusing on the transformation of wind, solar, and hydropower into the usable electricity that powers our homes. Throughout the day students will participate in various activities and design projects that allow them to first-hand work with solar power, e.g. building solar fountains and cars, optimizing electrical production using wind power, building and designing wind turbines, and finally applying the electrical power to electrical circuits.
