In this one week exploration led by designLab faculty Kimberly Gerardi, students will build a wonderful green environment simulated by clean energy sources technologies. Students will tinker with solar panels, water wheels, irrigation methods, wind turbines and hydroponic growth to help our youngest engineers develop understanding of how clean energy can impact our Earth. Equally, students will identify how common practice of farming, irrigation, destruction of habitats, and current power sources are harmful to our planet on a much larger scale than we know. This foundational look at Earth Science may ignite our students to make more informed choices when selecting healthy foods, using plastic bags, chemicals, and help them spread the word on saving our planet. This course is appropriate for middle school aged students, and the cost of the camp includes materials so that each student can take home a component of the green environment.
