Current Projects

The primary goal of these projects is to bring real-world situations into a research based classroom. Students work on individual research that is brought together to create a large scale group project and compete with other teams toward a common goal. During the 2007-2008 school year, the Energy Systems Lab will be collaborating with Thomas Jefferson's Prototyping Lab and Robotics Lab in an attempt to mimic the large scale projects found at the university level.
