This camp is two-weeks long and includes a variety of project based learning instruction.

In this camp, the students are challenged with formulating a hypothesis about selecting the most appropriate renewable energy source for a specific location and subsequently validating that hypothesis using scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and project-based learning based on what the students learn during the camp.

We use hands-on class projects/displays along with a 5-meter planetarium. We then expose the students to the same earth science concepts using an interactive Earth Science classroom syllabus.

The students also get to see real-world applications of these topics by visiting an operational wind turbine farm in eastern NC and a solar farm.

This program will cultivate the participating students’ interest in Earth Science and Renewable Energy and help them develop the prerequisite STEM skill sets.

This multi-faceted project exposes the students to careers in engineering, renewable energy, marine ecology/oceanography, meteorology, and geology. The goal is to establish a STEM “youth workforce development pipeline” to get 7th-9th grade students interested in areas of STEM and research, especially in the area of renewable energy sources/Earth Science.

Our training scenario utilizes a RealFright simulation software and hardware that will incorporate flight lessons, game-like challenges, and multiplayer options so the students can fly their drones and compete with each other virtually.

The software that we use will have compatibility with Virtual Reality headsets. This capability will add another dimension to the learning experience and help the students develop 21st Century skill sets that the aerospace workforce industry will require.

FAQs for Renewable Energy Camp

Students spend the camp learning about different renewable energy sources to allow them to best defend what renewable energy source would provide the greatest potential energy for a given landscape or scenario. They complete research to defend their position for their presentation.
