Wind Energy Technology and Career Paths, Andrew Glick - Science Speakers
Andrew Glick, M.S., is a mechanical engineer doing failure and structural analysis for Vestas--the world's largest manufacturer of wind turbines--at their U.S. headquarters in Portland, Oregon. He's done design work on wind and water turbines for different companies. He researched airflow/cooling around solar arrays for his Master's thesis (Portland State University).
If you've ever taken a warm shower at the RFC, you've benefitted from Andrew's excitement about renewable energy! As a student at GC, he was part of the team that initiated, designed and installed the SunShower array (goshen.edu/sunshower) which is still heating water for the Recreation-Fitness Center with solar energy.
This lecture is free and open to the public. Masks required.
