Fun with Pumps and Turbines

Join Tyler Desiderio, P.E., and Steve Smith, P.E., water resource engineers from Applegate Group, Inc. to learn the basics of water pumps and hydropower turbines. Participants will begin by powering a treadle pump to fill a water tower. We highly encourage you to bring your swimsuit and a towel because once the water tower is full - watch out - there’s a chance of getting wet! Students will also see how electricity can be generated by powering a cellphone with a hydropower turbine.
