The purpose of this project was to perform a sustainability and STEM utilization planning study of the ECon building and site at TVSR that included the planning of an off-grid solar installation, and a vision for the development of the site to include STEM and sustainability programs, including solar energy installation, future site development, and educational benefits. The solar energy component involved a plan to provide power to the ECon building for lighting and wildlife habitat support. Visioning for future site development consisted of recommendations for the use of the ECon site as a center for STEM and sustainability education.
