Presentation Title: The Importance of InSite: Stories from Middlebury's Most Diverse Team

Section: Poster Session Group 1 #18

Location: McCardell Bicentennial Hall, Great Hall

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 10:30am - 11:15am

Abstract:

It seems like an awfully outlandish idea to build an entirely sustainable house in Vermont, take it apart, ship it to California, put it back together for a competition before taking the whole thing down again to send back to Middlebury to be resurrected as a part of campus housing. But what makes Middlebury’s Solar Decathlon team so interesting is not the seemingly impossible nature of the project at hand, but rather the stories of those who have decided to invest themselves in this competition. With over 100 students involved in Middlebury’s Solar Decathlon effort, the InSite team is one of the most diverse groups on campus. Through the parallel stories of several members of the team, it is easy to see and fully understand just how important this project is.
