These are our ongoing projects for the 2022-2023 school year. If you're interested in joining a project team or starting your own project, please reach out to one of our officers!
Each project is student led and consists of 5-10 students who meet on a weekly/bi-weekly basis.
The Water Reclamation team plans to construct an atmospheric water condenser using solar power and radiative condensing strategies. The goal is to allow the campus to became more sustainable with water reuse.
3D Filament Recycling
Through the FEDC and other 3-D printing locations across campus, an abundance of Plastic waste is created due to failed prints or support material. Our aim is to shred this waste and re-extrude and spool it into filament that students will be able to use.
All-in-One Soil Sensor
The all in one soil sensor aims to measure soil pH, moisture, and humidity as well as light and nutrients present at Howdy Farms. This data can be accessed wirelessly. The project is intended to be open source to allow for others to replicate the sensor.
Green House Air Analyzer
Designing and building a Raspberry Pi Air Analyzer to be used to measure different gas concentrations in greenhouses with future plans to implement it at Howdy Farms.
US DOE Solar District Cup Competition
The Solar District Cup challenges multidisciplinary student teams to design and model distributed energy systems for a campus or urban district. These systems integrate solar, storage, and other distributed energy capabilities across mixed-use districts, or groups of buildings served by a common electrical distribution feeder. The competition engages students across the engineering, urban planning, and finance disciplines to reimagine how energy is generated, managed, and used in a district.
The ecobricking team plans to recycle single-use plastics to create ecobricks. These ecobricks will be used to build future projects and potential art pieces. This project creates public awareness of the environmental issues with single-use plastics.
