What is the Greenhouse Engineering Design & Sustainable Energy Project
The Greenhouse Engineering Design & Sustainable Energy Project is a multidisciplinary project that integrates the: social and cultural perspectives and experiences of students; Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM); and the engineering design to build a Sustainable green energy greenhouse through a hands-on problem based learning approach. The curriculum has 10 modules that take students through a journey of self exploration in building a model scale greenhouse and then recreating it with new ideas based on what they learned through the hands-on experiences on solar, wind and hydro green energy and much more. This project is truly an experience like no other!
