Generation TECH at Texas Tech will provide high school students with an interest in renewable energy an opportunity to consider renewable energy technologies as a future academic pursuit. This is an exciting new camp for rising 9th-12th grade students to "Fuel the Future!"
In the not too distant future, clean renewable energy sources will provide much of the electricity for the world's population. Renewable energy production is rapidly expanding; wind turbines, solar panels and other renewable electric generation sources will be dotting the landscape. Renewable energy is indeed a growing industry of the 21st century and with it comes an emerging body of knowledge.
Ensuring the growth of clean, renewable energy sources is largely dependent upon creating a competent well-educated workforce. Generation TECH will provide young scholars an introduction to the field of renewable energy and an opportunity to consider renewable energy technologies as a future academic pursuit.
