Two engineering giants are joining forces to develop a broad range of solar power technologies, including power towers, dish engine systems, solar troughs, and concentrated photovoltaics. The companies inked the deal, called the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, last fall with a goal of accelerating progress toward developing solar power technology to generate clean, renewable electric power sources for consumer use. Now if only customers would pay more attention to their energy consumption.
These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Many classes were nearly 50 percent girls and 50 percent boys.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
