Wilbur Wright Participates in an Interactive Science Fair
Wilbur Wright participated in an interactive science fair, held at Al Raby High School (Chicago), where approximately 150 9th graders were challenged with an information scavenger hunt at 6 tables, each staffed by different organizations active in renewable energy or green lifestyle education. Wright's station had a stationary bike generator, a scale model wind turbine, and various solar energy components. The bike generator was set up to power a kitchen blender that contained lemonade mix and ice. The students were tasked with answering the question: "Where does the energy that mixes the lemonade come from?" Students who could answer correctly were entitled to get in line, take a turn on the bike, and get a cup of lemonade; or - "Get juice if you make juice."
Besides Wilbur Wright, the following organizations were also present; Climate Cycle, Green Community Schools, CPS Go Green, and Inspiration Corporation. Each had their own engaging exhibit and scavenger hunt question to answer.
