"Power UP" Provides Resources to Kentucky Teachers and Students - from UKNOW: The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) and the UK Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments (Vis Center) have worked together to develop an iPad app and website dedicated to energy education called "Power UP." The app and website are specifically designed for high school teachers throughout the Commonwealth to use in their curriculum, as well as to serve as a resource for students who want to learn more about energy usage.
The SEAM program brings together undergraduate business and engineering students to participate in an integrated program in which students learn from both disciplines. These scholars are eligible to enroll in specially-designed courses that expand their professional horizons by working in cross-functional teams with other high achievement-oriented students. A group of these students met with Director Rodney Andrews, learned about algae use for CO2 reduction, and toured the new renewable fuel and energy storage building yesterday.
