Trainees Meeting: Clean Energy Day test run

As part of our outreach efforts, we visit high schools with the EnGen Roadshow but we are preparing for our first outreach event where high school students visit our campus. In addition to the usual program, we are adding a hands-on water filtration experiment using common household goods such as cotton fabric, cotton balls, cardboard, coffee filters, and charcoal (activated carbon). This was the test run.
