Energy Conversion and Conservation and Manufacturing
This paper presents the project-based learning result of green energy manufacturing integrated with virtual reality (VR) in the Department of xxxxxxxxxx. This work provides an innovative solution for optimizing learning eﬀectiveness and improving educational outcomes through the development of virtual models that can be used and integrated into the existing renewable energy laboratory. The goal is to apply these prototypical simulators to train undergraduate engineering students and professionals in wind energy education; and to oﬀer experiential learning opportunities in 3D modeling, simulation, and visualization. The students were given multiple projects within the green energy manufacturing in a course on Renewable Energy Systems. The final project was assigned to the students with the topics on virtual reality modeling related to renewable energy, power systems or other engineering topics. These projects have become a good example of student-centric green STEM program as well as providing valuable virtual reality experience to the students. In addition to providing useful lessons in teamwork and project management, the projects provide a working demonstration of a renewable energy system. The interactive project-based learning gives students an incentive to seek creative solutions to accomplishing project goals.
