Cool Girls will host a booth at this years Chinese New Year Celebration on February 16th, 2019.
This is a free Open-to-Public event at Silver Creek High School (4901 Nelson Road, Longmont, CO 80503) from 2-5pm.
Have you ever wondered how electricity is generated from wind? Wind is the best renewable energy source around and Colorado has a lot of WIND. At our booth, with a few simple household items, you can design and build your very own wind turbine. Once built, you can test your wind turbine by hooking it up to a volt meter and seeing how much electricity your design produces.
How Wind Turbines works:
Wind turbines generate electricity by converting kinetic energy to electrical energy. Typically, the wind rotates the blades of a turbine, which turns a shaft that is connected to a generator that produces electricity.
Colorado Wind Facts:
- Wind is the fastest growing energy resource on Colorado the grid
- 17.3% of electricity in Colorado is generated by wind
Colorado wind manufacturing and operations jobs totaled over 6,000
Cool Girls Science and Art Club Information: Since 2008, the mission has been to engage young girls from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds in entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (e-STEAM) so they have the desire, confidence and skills to sustain their contributions to the community throughout their personal, academic and professional journeys.
The Longmont club meets on Wednesday’s at 5:00 – 6:30pm. Each semester the girls choose topics they are curious about and we invite mentors from those areas. The low mentor-to-girl ratio fosters a high level of interaction in an engaging and friendly learning environment.
