Registration is underway for the academic enrichment program, Run on the Wind: Engineering A Clean Tomorrow. This Texas Tech summer residential camp, scheduled for June 10-15, is open for students entering grades 7-11.
The camp will provide students with information regarding careers in wind science as well as inforamtion about the necessary academic skills to succeed in wind engineering. Sessions and activities include building a wind turbine, principles and physics of converting wind to electricity, wind sailing at Reese Technology Center, atmospheric and meteorological aspects of forecasting wind power, and a wind tunnel demonstration. Fostering the growth of this clean energy source is largely dependent upon creating a competent, well-educated workforce. This camp is a step in that direction.
