Energy Day, Denver’s Largest Family STEM Festival Returns
September 22, 2018
Energy Day will feature exciting exhibits and interactions with energy experts designed to spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math preparing them for a future in STEM.
DENVER – Sept. 4, 2018 – Denver’s largest annual FREE family STEM festival is Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11:00AM to 4:00PM at Denver’s East High School, 1600 City Park Esplanade.
CDOT will have its electric vehicle on hand to showcase the driving options of the future. In partnership with CDOT, School of Mines students will present its Hyperloop project, highlighting the next generation in transportation. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Littleton’s Dakota Ridge High School Robotics Team will present model electric cars designed and constructed for NREL’s annual Middle School Electric Car Competition this past May.
“Encouraging students by providing a space for them to see and experience the skills necessary to solve big-world problems in energy is the reason we put on one of the biggest STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) events in Denver,” said Andrew Browning, Chief Operating Officer of Consumer Energy Alliance, one of the hosts of this year’s Energy Day event in Denver.
“We want kids to see how fun jobs in the energy sector are and help students get excited about jobs that could fill Colorado’s workforce-ready pipeline with graduates who are well-versed in the sciences – setting them up for a successful career path. It all starts with bringing Colorado employers, educators and students together on one day to highlight real-world STEM solutions in the energy sector.”
