Generation Tech summer camp "fuels the future" for HS scientists
TTU's National Wind Institute (NWI) co-hosted a unique summer camp for high school students over the summer.
Called "Generation Tech: Fuel the Future", the camp focused on renewable energy: what it is, why it's going to be important, and how these high school future scientists could take part in this revolution when they graduate.
Co-hosted by TTU IDEAL, camp session topics included building a working wind turbine, designing and developing a solar-powered urban community, land-sailing at Reese Technology, and numerous other hands-on activities.
