FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Renewable Energy – Energy can come from windmills spinning in the desert wind, changes in ocean temperature, steam generated deep in the molten core of the earth, or even from burning vegetation. Locations include California’s Mojave desert, where solar engineers explain how giant mirrors capture the sun’s energy, and Hawaii, where scientists experiment with tidal energy.
