Year 13 Technology students enjoyed a showcase event on Renewable Energy at the Centre for Sustainable Technologies at the Ulster University’s Jordanstown Campus on 03/10/16.

The event was designed around the principles of sustainability and environmental awareness.  The University’s BSc Energy and BEng Architectural Engineering courses aim to produce graduates able to provide innovative and forward-thinking solutions to meet the global energy challenges for a sustainable future. 

The event included a range of interactive experiments which included:  being shown how a wind turbine creates power;  manufacturing their own solar panel and working with an infra-red camera to detect heat and heat loss in various objects and buildings.  It also included a presentation by the course team.
