  • Clean Energy Hawaii STEM — Featured by Apple as “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” in both the Education and Educational Games Categories.  Clean Energy Hawaii is an educational iPad App designed to learn about solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, and biomass clean energy.  Seven fun activities inspire STEM exploration and inquiry:  1) Tap into the geothermal heat of the earth. 2) Explore the difference between sugar cane and switchgrass biomass. 3) Build a custom wind farm and experiment with generators and wind speeds.  4) Discover how flow, height, and turbines can change hydroelectric power production.  5) Imagine that your iPad is a photovoltaic solar panel and position it correctly to generate 40 watts of power in locations around the world.  6) Quiz yourself and learn how peak sun hours vary month to month for ten world locations.  7) Add photovoltaic panels, clouds, and batteries to a solar farm to understand real world challenges for solar energy production.  Clean Energy Hawaii STEM was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education and developed in partnership with the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB), Women in Technology Program.
