Grandparent University

Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK

Our research group participated in the Grandparent University activity this year. The total of attendances in our major was 87! Our session was recorded and available on the following link below. In our session, we discussed the law of conservation of energy, type of energies and energy storage systems.  Grandparents and grandkids had chance to built their own lemon batteries, hand-batteries and aluminum-air batteries using household items. Many thanks to our participated assistants Cameron Ketelsleger and Tanner Hagerman (undergraduate researchers).  I am looking forward next year to participate in this event again!
