Interactive Energy Day to be Held at N.C. A&T

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and application will be on display at North Carolina A&T State University’s 7th Annual Energy Day. The university’s Center for Energy Research & Technology (CERT) will host the 1-day “energy fair” on Wednesday, April 6 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the university’s Alumni-Foundation Events Center.    

Nearly 2,000 Guilford County elementary and middle school students are expected to attend the event, gaining unparalleled exposure to the latest advancements in energy-related technology. 

Students will be immersed in over 30 age appropriate interactive exhibits illustrating various energy efficiency techniques and renewable energy sources including solar, wind, bio-fuels, hydrogen fuel cells, photovoltaic energy and lightening.

Energy Day connects students with their classroom subject matter through tangible and practical application, while providing useful course content and activities to aid teachers and administrators in enhancing their schools’ science curriculum. The hands-on exhibits and presentations will be led by N.C. A&T faculty, graduate students and professional energy leaders who utilize the technology on a daily basis.
