The Smart Microgrid
with Rudy Montoya, UNM Research Assistant
Not too long ago, power failures were catastrophic events that would disrupt thousands of families, businesses, and city/state infrastructure. Rudy is a mechanical engineer working to change the structure of today’s electrical grid system to intelligently manage power changes, incorporate sustainable energy, and to increase the efficiency of the current grid. In this Café, you can interact with a 3D model of the SMART Microgrid, play with electromagnets, and create electrical circuits.
FREE Teen Science Cafés meet from 5:30–7pm at Explora and do not require registration!
