Come join us at Municipal Plaza
7 June 2018
for our 3rd annual Energy Revolution Fair
Green Calgary’s Energy Revolution Fair is a one-day pop-up learning extravaganza for students in Grades 6-12 from across Alberta. Held in conjunction with the Mayor’s Environment Expo, Junior High and High School students are invited to enjoy a full, rich day of learning around the topics of renewable energy and energy efficiency. With interactive exhibits, hands-on activities, a student team competition, as well as live music - students and teachers alike will be sure to learn a lot as well as have a great time!
The transition away from traditional sources of energy, and into a new energy future is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Give your students the advantage of being ahead of the curve on energy and register for free today!
Do you have students in your school who are true innovators? Student teams can apply to present their renewable energy projects at the Fair. Big cash prizes are available for the top 3 teams. For more information and to apply, click here.
This year’s exhibitors include:
SAIT: Solar Roller
A fully functional mobile solar energy trailer. It features a battery-based solar charging system, a computer monitoring station, and lab capabilities for experiential learning.
Energy for All: A Renewable Energy MAKERSPACE
Students will be met with a series of stations consisting of electrical circuitry components for solving a unique problem. The innovative problem solving required at the station will reflect the work that Energy For All conducts overseas. Check out their great work here: www.energyforall.ca. Student will also have the opportunity to explore a water pumping station manipulated via Raspberry Pi.
Sponsor Energy: the SOLO
Come and check out the prototype for the SOLO vehicle manufactured by Canadian-based Electra Meccanica. It’s the cutest fully electric, single passenger vehicle you’ve ever seen. Imagine never having to buy gas or get an oil change again!
ENMAX with Inside Education
Learn more about Alberta’s energy mix. How is our electricity produced today? How will we move away from coal and toward renewable sources like solar and wind?
Arusha and Open Streets Events: Powering Our World
Students can hop on the Fender Blender – a pedal-powered electricity generator, to power speakers, charge a phone, and other devices. All while learning about how to conserve energy, the amount of electricity different household tasks consume, and more!
Relay Education is a national charity that brings energy to life through hands-on workshops in renewable energy. Relay will be on-site with model wind turbines, to allow participants to test different configurations of blades and see how wind turbines work. Participants will be creating their own energy by harnessing the power of the wind!
University of Calgary Solar Car Team
Come inside this award winning solar car and learn from a team of engineering students about sustainable energy solutions.
EDP Renewables Canada
Wind power is one of the most affordable and fastest growing sources of electricity available today. Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the wind energy from the fourth largest owner and operator of wind farms in the world. How does a wind turbine produce electricity? What goes into building a wind farm? What trends are we seeing in the wind industry? What is it like to work on a wind farm?
Check out innovative renewable energy projects brought to the Fair by students vying for top prize. Listen to them present their projects to a panel of judges and cheer for your favourite team!
