Groups of high schoolers eagerly lined up Tuesday morning at Purdue University to test how well their handcrafted wind turbines would perform when stacked against the power of four fans. The kids were competing to create a turbine that would generate the most energy as a part of a challenge for the Duke Energy Academy at Purdue. The annual academy, now in its fifth year, brings in U.S. high school students to learn about renewable energy with hopes they'll be inspired to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields and solve energy challenges. "We want these students to be the leaders of tomorrow," said Pankaj Sharma, managing director of the Purdue Energy Center and Global Sustainability Institute. The academy lasts throughout the week and is hosting 52 students and 27 teachers from mainly Indiana schools, though about 20 percent come from outside states, said Tolu Omotoso, a civil engineering graduate student and coordinator for the academy.Read Full Story
