Material is super-heated in a solar furnace in the research yard behind Anderson Hall during a special demonstration for area middle school students Friday, June 22. The students were introduced to the furnace as part of a lesson on solar heating during a Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) week-long summer camp on renewable energy. The furnace is mostly used and operated by the NMSU College of Engineering.
