Science fair held at the Iron Range Earth Fest.
This year's event is all about waste. The United States has about 125 Million households – twice as many as a few decades ago. Along with this growth, our use of electronics is also going through the roof – computers, cell phones, gaming systems along with our refrigerators and TVs. On the Iron Range, we have about 86,000 households, each in need of electricity. If our population keeps growing, and the amount of electricity keeps going up, the electrical generating companies won’t be able to keep up! - How can we generate more energy to meet our needs now and into the future or how can we reduce the energy we use?
