NRELEd: Crystal NREL Signs

Meghan Pearson, Ann Greenaway

Research output: NRELMarketing


Crystals are often associated with mythical sciences. For hundreds of years, humans have believed that natural crystals have healing powers. These crystals are usually made of minerals like quartz (SiO2) and come in many different shapes and colors. Everyday compounds like salt (NaCl) and sugar (C6H12O6) are crystals. Water in its frozen form, ice, forms a crystal. If you have ever caught a snowflake on your hand on a snowy day, you have probably seen an ice crystal. Design an NREL sign. You are welcome to save your sign, and have it displayed in the NREL Education Center when you come to campus. You can also submit a picture of your sign to be displayed if you can’t bring it in.
