An Explosive Journey
Fri October 17, 2014 @ 09:30 – 11:30
Come join us on an explosive journey through renewable fuels, solar meadows and electric cars at Edinburgh College’s Dalkeith Campus.
1. Renewables Lab
- See genetically modified bacteria that glow in the dark
- Bacterial fuel cell (a fuel cell that generates electrical energy)
- Ethanol Gun – this is so loud it THRILLS me every time!
2. Solar meadows tour – see around our field of solar panels. It is quite a sight to behold. (see this BBC article)
3. Electric cars – try out our toy hydrogen cars and take a trip in our real-life electric car (4 people at a time)
Wheelchair accessible for the lab work. Solar meadows are in a field (access is limited). The cars are normal cars so access depends on participant transferring to car.
