Learning Green Technologies Through Video Gaming

In partnership with Dr. Len Annetta and an NSF funded project GRADUATE, Rodney Schmitz have teamed up to sponsor a program in which students will learn the advancements in various Green Technologies through gaming applications. The students will research the various aspects of differing green technologies currently under research at NC State University. These technologies range from renewable energies to alternative methods of transportation. The students will utilize this research and apply it in the form of student-generated video games. The students will use their research and video game as the focus of a Graduation Project requirement for the New Schools Project of North Carolina.
