Going to the American Solar Energy Society was a blast. We learned all about new forms of renewable energy. And we also learned different ways of making energy, such as new ways of making thermal energy. We learned a lot, and we also presented, which was very good. We were very nervous, but we got through it. And we were apparently good, even though we messed up a few times. We saw to Marc Perez’s father speak about the complexity of the electricity grid. Though we were exhausted, we were astounded by the debate after his part between two or so people. They were talking about selling leftover energy that is not being used for a higher amount. In all, the experience was amazing. We learned a lot, and met new people. It was a great experience.

This trip was very inspirational. We learned a lot about renewable energy. The best part was when we answered questions for the audience. I learned about sketchup which is a program that you can use to make 3d designs.
