With support from Professor George Crabtree and the Office of Sustainability, students at UIC will be preparing an application for the Clean Energy Challenge, a competition involving solutions using renewable energy and offering a $100,000 prize. This team will explore and develop the concept of a "Green Bus Stop," and will require a diverse team of students with skills and interests that include:
- Forming a business plan and conducting market analysis
- Designing architectural elements using urban design best practices
- Creating a safe, secure place that is engineered to use renewable energy
- Documenting and promoting the entire project in a 3-minute video pitch
Much preliminary work has already begun, and the team should submit their proposal by December 5, 2011.
Potential team members could be upper-level undergraduate students or Master's degree candidates.
To express an interest in joining the team, send a resume and letter of interest to email@example.com before November 10th; please include "UIC Green Bus Stop" in the subject of the message.
