Oct. 6 - 7, 2016

Middle and high school students will compare the current means of producing and distributing power ("the power grid") with the potentially life-changing impact of the emerging Smart Grid through hands-on activities, dynamic demonstrations, and interactions with industry professionals. Activities help students to develop 21st Century skills, such as teamwork, communication, creativity, innovation, problem solving, and critical thinking.

Student Energy Summit topics include:

  • Benefits, issues, and career opportunities associated with current power production and distribution
  • Smart Grid technologies
  • Energy consumption and costs
  • Advances in scientific knowledge
  • Renewable and non-renewable energy sources
  • Energy and the environment
