Boone Dam Volunteers Showcase Three Kinds of Power Generation at Kingsport’s Maker Faire

AUGUST 2, 2017—Visitors to the annual Maker Faire at Kingsport’s FunFest had an opportunity to view 3-D models of TVA power generating facilities. Volunteers from Boone Dam were on hand to explain the different types of power generation of Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, Shawnee Fossil Plant and Fontana’s Hydro Plant. Both young and old enjoyed learning more about TVA and its mission of providing low cost power to the more than nine million people of the Valley. In addition, robotics teams sponsored by TVA were at Maker Faire displaying the ingenuity of the student-made machines.
