While most middle-school students are basking in the sun at the pool as summer winds down, 14 are learning about a new way to harness the sun’s energy.
The students are enrolled in Hanes Magnet School’s weeklong Power Up! Summer Camp, a partnership between the school and Wake Forest University’s Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials.
