This camp is designed by UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) faculty to inspire talented middle school students and build a foundation for understanding energy, power generation, renewable energy sources, science, engineering, and technology. Spend the week at the UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) facility exploring energy sources, especially renewable energy. Get your hands on EET lab equipment (including solar panels, wind tunnel, and turbine) to investigate circuits, generators, and motors. Once you’ve got the basics of energy down you’ll work in teams with LEGO Renewable Energy Kits to solve a series of challenges.
