Keeping Our Planet Healthy: Sustainable Energy

October 16 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Join STEMCX and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum as we invite Kelly Wyche, CEO and founder of Collective Power (https://www.ourcollectivepower.org/) to discuss the need for sustainable ways to power our planet. Then join Kelly as she leads us through the construction of our own DIY windmill using materials in your own home. This STEM activity is inspired by William Kamkwamba, the environmentalist who famously built a wind turbine to save his village in Africa. A video reading of  The Boy who Harnessed the Wind by illustrator Elizabeth Zunon will be included.

Keeping Our Planet Healthy: Sustainable Energy  is in partnership with STEMcx. This program is part of the  2021 Maryland STEM Festival.
