We would like to extend a big congratulations to NCCP sophomore Gregory L, '19 for being accepted into the ICE-T Project at the Citizen Science Lab! The ICE-T Project is an innovative project that bridges the disciplines of renewable energy research, biological analysis, and computer science into one.
Gregory will be meeting every week for the rest of the semester at The Citizen Science Lab working on two separate phases of the ICE-T Project. During the first phase of the project, Gregory will be learning the Python coding language and how to build a small computer called a Raspberry Pi, while the second phase of the project will concentrate on the science behind the microbial fuel cells (MFC) made from river sediment and how to construct it.
This innovative project bridges the disciplines of renewable energy research, biological analysis, and computer science into one. The BNY Mellon Foundation is sponsoring the program and upon completion, Gregory will also receive a monetary stipend. Greg is also a member of EDGE, NCCP's game design/tech company and participated in our mechanical engineering program last spring.
We look forward to learning more about Gregory as he continues to work on his project!
