Announcement: This Saturday at The Science Circle - "Sustainable Energy Science Lab"
Saturday June 13
10 AM to 11 AM SL time
Solar Sierra and Windy Schor represent EnergyTeachers.org in Second Life, building virtual objects for exploring real-life technologies, and holding meetings and discussions between educators and interested people.
Windy uses the somewhat realistic wind that blows through Second Life regions to develop methods for gathering statistics about wind, and for modeling wind power systems.
Solar builds models of solar cookers, heliostats, daylighting, and photovoltaic systems.
Windy and Solar hope to offer EnergyTeachers.org’s Green Dollhouse Challenge in Second Life. The Green Dollhouse Challenge is an event where a jury of building professionals and educators judge models of sustainable buildings on their merits rather than competitively.
Windy and Solar will offer a tour of our Sustainable Energy Science Lab in Second Life on Etopia Island
We’ll look at ways scripting objects in Second Life models the way light, wind, and water work for us, and how data-visualization exposes the ways experts and the public can analyze these resources and turn understanding into fun and practical technologies from power to cooking to art to architecture.
Tour led by Shawn Reeves
