Khi Solar One (KSO) is a 50 MW solar power tower plant located in Upington, South Africa, which was commissioned in February, 2016. KSO has 4,120 heliostats on 346 acres of land. Each heliostat is as large as 140 square meters, reflecting sunlight to a tower as tall as 205 meters. KSO has two hours of thermal storage. The power plant is expected to generate a total of 180 GWh per year.

The new Sensing Science through Modeling Matter project is developing and researching a technology-enriched curriculum to support learning about matter and its changes at the kindergarten level. We hope that creating a curiosity for science in the early grades is a strong foundation for later STEM learning.

Our Geological Models for Explorations of Dynamic Earth (GEODE) project is developing new geodynamic plate tectonic modeling software for middle school Earth science classrooms that allows students to observe and describe the formation of surface geologic features in terms of plate interactions.

Learn about computer-aided design and artificial intelligence by one of the developers of our Energy3D CAD software.
