Presentations

The Future of Light 2.0 Other Presenters: Ryan Bailey, Danielle Balzano, Kianna Brevig, Daniel Reed, Denver Overend

The Engineering Ambassadors will present on the applications of digital lighting; Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for a multitude of applications beyond lighting. This includes communications and large scale applications of LED lighting systems. Students will be exposed to technological advances that they probably never imagined and how crucial they are to the electronic devices they enjoy in today’s world. The presentation is suited for but not limited to general middle school class, technology and physics (core, regents and AP) classes.

Wind Energy Other Presenters: Kianna Brevig, Zoe Westwater, Dana Stevens, Samantha Bliss, Vincent Arena, Tyler Brown, Mallory Gordon

This presentation will introduce the importance of the development of alternative energies to reduce America’s traditional dependency on oil. Wind energy will be the focus of the presentation as the technology will be described. The presentation will then focus on the engineering designs of the wind turbines. The hands-on activity will involve the students in designing the wind turbine blades. Sponsored by CURENT Engineering Research Center
