REU Group Activities

To better help our understanding of environmental science and engineering, the 2003 REU group made several road trips. These excursions allowed us to get an up close and personal view of science and engineering in action.

 

Adirondack Lodge Retreat

On our first weekend at Clarkson, we ventured into the heart of the Adirondacks to experience the grandeur of the magnificent state park.

Burlington, Vermont

Our next trip took us across a ferry on Lake Champlain and into the Green Mountains to visit Burlington, Vermont, where we checked out the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, chilled downtown , visited the Intervale compost facility, and toured a 50 MW wood-burning power plant.
