Light it Up! Solar and LED Tech

Solar and LED technologies are lighting the way for a sustainable planet!  Join us as we explore the science, implications and applications of solar energy and LED light sources.  Together, we will utilize spectrometers, prisms, solar panels, micro-inverters and wafers to better understand the potential and limitations of these exciting technologies.

TOPICS:

  • Understanding and assessing your energy footprint
  • Fundamental concepts of solar energy and LED technology
  • The economics of sustainability
  • The implications of solar and LED technology on social change

This workshop will be held at the STEM Collaborative Center (http://stem.unm.edu/contact-us.html), but will include outdoor activities at multiple sites across campus.  Lunch will be provided free.
