COLUMBIA, KY - About 28 rising fourth- through eighth-graders were energized this week at the inaugural Camp Energy. Held at Adair County High School and sponsored by the Lindsey Wilson College Energy and Technology Career Academy, the free two-day camp taught students how to make a solar panel, how to measure the wind using an anemometer, how to make biodiesel and other lessons in energy sustainability.

In addition to Adair County schools and the LWC Energy Technology Career Academy, Camp Energy was also sponsored by Green River Rural Electric Cooperative, the Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence, and the National Energy Education Development Project. -Duane Bonifer
