Solon, OH – Girls from Nordonia Middle School, along with students from three other Northeast Ohio schools, participated in the NOPEC Energy Bike Project: Activating and Energizing Girls in Science (AEGIS). The students spent three days building an energy bike to take back to their schools.
During the event, the students learned the mechanics of the energy bike, then applied their knowledge by assembling and wiring the bikes. They also participated in a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) related games and activities.
“The energy bike is a really cool thing that I’m excited to incorporate when I’m teaching the kids things about energy conservation,” said Kayla Moore, who teaches 7th and 8th grade science at Nordonia Middle School and was present at the event.
