Students and teachers showcased their abilities Thursday in a celebration of Earth Day on the Hesston College campus.
Physics teacher Nelson Kilmer organized the event and said he believes some
alternative energy ides are starting to catch on.
His students were showing, and riding, a bicycle fitted with an electric engine that they had created this year in class.
Pork for lunch as cooked in a solar oven the class made last year.
"That (bicycle) is a good idea for the future. You can pedal it if you want to," Kilmer said.
They also had bread they had baked using solar energy. Kilmer said the oven can bake at more than 350 degrees for cooking when the sun is out.
