It was a pleasure speaking to the Introduction to Engineering class at Edison State College last night. The questions asked at this type of event never cease to amaze me and always inspire me to understand what people want to know about solar energy.
This was my second time speaking to this class. This time I decided to add a section on emerging technologies. I’m glad I did! Many of the questions revolved around the emerging technologies discussion. I should have known. After all, this was an engineering class at a college!
I don’t recall being so inquisitive in school. For the second time I was very impressed with the interest taken in the subject matter while presenting to this class. I’m sure the presentation was a welcomed break from the math and theory, and a window into the realities on an industry that is poised to be a major employer/customer for engineers in the years to come.
Maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised at the interest shown. Solar technology and engineering IS amazing, and I DO find it fun, as I mentioned during my presentation!
Thank you for having me, and I hope to be invited again next semester!
