Solar Turbines

Booth Description: 

Interactive and fun booth demonstrating how energy is converted from stored to kinetic, similar to a gas turbine. Energy stored in a balloon is released into a fan, generating kinetic energy. A voltage is generated across the motor leads as the fan spins faster. The hands-on exhibit includes use of a 3D printed mini-turbine model, discussion around power generation through interaction with the Solar Turbines Team, and a cool look into a cutaway turbine engine model. For over 90 years, Solar Turbines has been a leader in energy solutions and advanced manufacturing. Solar Turbines provides the latest and greatest in energy solutions! Come check out the booth and hear about the exciting products, services, careers, and talented work force at Solar Turbines. See if you can make the balloon display generate the most power!
