Clean Energy Day
Green power and energy generation is the practice of producing energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a green way is widely considered to be one of the most significant challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. In general, renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric energy are widely considered to be green.
LSU Clean Energy Day aims to increase public awareness about green power and energy generation and also provide students with a clear vision of potential careers and research paths they can choose in this field. This event provides a unique opportunity for students with different educational levels and backgrounds to communicate and learn from each other about the field of green power and energy generation. It will help high school students to gain a better vision of clean energy and power systems and career opportunities in this field. Also, undergraduate students will learn the advantages of pursuing their higher education in power and energy systems. Additionally, graduate students will learn possible research opportunities from their peers.
*Event has been cancelled until further notice.*
Three competition categories
- High School Students: to prepare posters using their intuition and own vision about power and energy systems.
- Undergraduate Students: to select relevant topics, conduct online research, and prepare posters based on that.
- Graduate Students: to use outputs of their research works to prepare posters.
Participation in the event and poster symposium is free. We will have a cash prize for each category:
- Five awards (each $200) for high school students
- Four awards (each $250) for undergraduate students
- Four awards (each $250) for graduate students
We will also serve pizza from 12 - 1 p.m.
For participation, the application form must be filled out and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 6th.
