I've got the POWER! Try alternative energy sources.

General description

Ralph Waldo Emerson said:
"Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff."
Find this hidden stuff together with us - learn more about renewable energy systems. All three kinds of power: wind, solar and hydro will be closely examined by you and professors from Baltic University.
Time ticks. Supplies of fossil fuels are running out. The faster we realize it the better for us. That's why making renewable energy more popular is a vital issue.

Don't hesitate if you:
:: are aware of pollution-related dangers of climate change
:: dreamed about a car running on water
:: want to know what fuel cells and batteries have in common
:: would like to learn how to convert alcohol to hydrogen

"After hours" you will explore our energy - energy of Lodz's famous Pirates, find out something more about MYTO, visit great pubs on one of the longest shopping streets in Europe - Piotrkowska Street and learn some of rich history of our industrial city. Don't hesitate - be renewable with us :)
