Join us on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at the Coastal Studies Institute on the ECU Outer Banks Campus for the North Carolina Renewable Energy Challenge. This day-long event will feature both wind and ocean energy divisions for middle and high school student teams. Wind energy divisions will design and build a wind turbine to test in our wind tunnnel while ocean energy divisions will design and build a wave energy converter to test in our 10 meter wave tank. Both wind and ocean energy divisions will compete in device testing, present to a panel of judges and and take part in renewable enrgy instant challenges. Winning teams will receive cash and prizes. The North Carolina Renewable Energy Challenge strives to increase student interest in green technology and promote innovation while fostering 21st-century skills that better prepare students for the growing renewable energy industry.
