Michigan’s Keweenaw peninsula is host to countless outdoor activities. Snowmobiling, hiking, camping, climbing, and skiing are just a few. These activities place people well outside of cell phone coverage. An alternate system is needed to supplement cellular coverage and provide communications in remote areas.
Several projects will be explored while in the rural areas surrounding Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. These projects include creating a play area for Government School Kunnankulathur, checking on the efficiency of a biochar filtration system that was previously installed, looking into a small solar powered system for a local school, and installing a compost system on campus and in lesson plans.
For a second year, the Keweenaw Science and Engineering Festival (KSEF) is filled with family-friendly interactive and educational events for all ages. This four day festival includes an art show, Engineering Day, Science Pub Crawl, Nerd Night (for teens), Michigan Tech Mind Trekkers, MSU Science Theatre and a community STEM showcase! In order to make this all happen, we need your support!
