DTE Alternative /Sustainable Energy Camp
DTE Alternative/Sustainable Energy
Summer Day Camp
The existence of all forms of life on our planet depends upon the consumption of energy in one form or
another. All life, including humans, plants, animals, and even very tiny sea creatures, extract
energy from our surroundings and convert it to usable forms. The food we consume, the solar rays that
shine on us, and the fires we get by burning are all different forms of energy. Summer camp students will
learn how human activities affect climate change, impacting the raging California fires and the
African droughts. Participating students will:
- Tour Michigan Power generation facilities (Solar, Wind, Biofuel, Hydrogen Fuel).
- Work on demonstration projects to build the system using energy conversion devices.
- Learn about electricity and energy measurements.
- Learn what caused the Flint water crisis and understand its impact on society.
- Through hands-on energy sessions, learn about solar, wind, fuel cells, battery/energy storage, energy
and environment, hybrid autonomous vehicles, water security, and bio-renewable fuels.
- Understand how renewable energy technology will support sustainable agriculture and sustainable
future cities for the next generation.
