LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — A college in southern Ohio has launched a speaker series to familiarize the public with its advanced energy learning center.
Hocking College is the only two-year college in Ohio to offer an associate's degree in advanced energy, yet officials tell the Logan Daily News (http://bit.ly/Vm3qwP ) the school's Energy Institute is largely unknown.
The college's website says the institute opened in 2009 with help from a $6 million federal grant. It features green building design and hands-on labs for studying advanced energy, fuel cells and hybrid vehicles.
The speaker series kicks off Monday with a talk by Columbus lawyer Jonathan Downes about job markets. A tour of the institute will follow.
The series is free for students, $20 for others. Proceeds will go to an emergency power fund for the campus.
