Over the period of August 2002 through February 2003, a project was done concerning the replacement of a power source for the EcoTarium in Worcester, Massachusetts. The current system, a cogeneration unit, had come to the end of its useful life after thirty years of operation. Research included interviews, Internet sources, and documents relative to energy sources that would be efficient, economical, environmentally sound, and educational. Findings were presented in the form of a written paper, PowerPoint presentation, and CD.
