Today’s lesson: Green energy can be fun

The electric Tesla roadster, an attention-grabber for school children arriving for CERT's Energy Day at the Cherry Building.

Busloads of school children arrived at the Cherry Building this morning for Energy Day, part of A&T’s Engineering Week activities.  While faculty members delivered lessons in bioenergy, hydropower, hydrogen fuel cells, and other topics, Duke Energy provided a nice introduction to the concept of green energy: the all-electric Tesla roadster (0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, zero tailpipe emissions … you can pick one up for about $101,000).

Among the groups providing displays and presentations were the NOAA ISET center, College of Engineering, and the Waste Management Institute.  The annual event is organized by the Center for Energy Research and Technology.
