From the sun’s rays to the wind that blows across our state, energy is all around us. How can we use solar panels and wind turbines to make electricity? Join us on this NebrASKa Scientist virtual field trip to meet a Nebraska Extension specialist who studies these alternative forms of energy production, see a solar panel up close, and go inside a wind turbine. NebrASKa Scientist is a partnership with Nebraska Extension and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
