St. Cloud State University Promotes USA Science and Engineering Festival at the Minnesota State Fair

For the 2nd year the opening day of Minnesota State Fair was designated as STEM Day. There were over 30 STEM organizations exhibiting at the Carousel Area. The St. Cloud State University (SCSU) exhibit concentrated on "Wind Power" as an alternative source of energy and promoting and spreading the word about the 2nd USA Science and Engineering Festival at three locations at the Fair. The State Fair saw a record number of participants this year. Dr. Carolyn Ruth Williams, Associate Dean for Multicultural Affairs and STEM Initiatives, said, "We wanted to make sure Minnesotans know about SCSU partnership and to get the word out about the 2nd USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. to be held April 27-29, 2012.

WOW, Wind Power!
Come visit our interactive exhibit and explore different blades for a wind turbine. Which design will generate the most electricity with the least amount of wind? Can you pick the best one? How does a wind turbine change the energy in the wind to electricity? Can the energy go the other way? See for yourself and build your own wind mill to harness the worlds's natural energy. We would love to see you!
