Corning helps expand the solar industry knowledge base
Get smart about solar energy – it is going to be an important part of our
future so it pays to know the “how’s and why’s” of this exciting technology.
Here are just a few examples of how Dow Corning is helping expand the solar
energy knowledge base:
Science and Engineering Yes! Expo – Dow Corning participated in
this Detroit, Michigan event visited by more than 20,000 high school
Science Classes in Korea – Dow Corning Korea and the Korea
Environment Education Association sponsored environment and science classes for
30 schools in Jincheon, North Choongcheong Province. 1,200 students conducted
solar cell tests and helped build a photovoltaic-powered car.
Solar Physics – Dow Corning presented a course on Solar Physics to
the Detroit (Michigan) Area Pre-College Engineering Program for
underrepresented minorities pursuing careers in science, mathematics,
engineering and technology-related fields.
