Hi, I’m Salma and I teach people how to make electricity with renewable energy. Renewable energy technology is rapidly developing and I love finding out about new discoveries and the innovative changes. I have to be creative and adaptable in finding the best way to explain my knowledge to students. I love engineering as I enjoy solving problems, especially when the solution will help people and the environment.
