The day will begin at 9 a.m. with a hands-on activity when students will make solar cells with Rick Irving, UT assistant research professor of physics, in Room 3022 of McMaster Hall (see map).

The students from Bettsville Schools and Bowling Green City Schools also will tour the Research and Technology Complex from 10 a.m. to noon to learn about alternative energy research underway at the University.

After lunch there, the students will finish the day with a tour from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. of the Scott Park Campus of Energy and Innovation where they will see and learn about the wind turbines and solar array on the campus from Michael Green, UT’s director of energy management.

The event is one of a number of regional tours that are part of the Ohio Energy Project, which began in 1984 and works to facilitate students’ and teachers’ understanding of the science of energy and its efficient use in order to empower the next generation of energy consumers.
