Green Week

By Website Administrator | May 8, 2008

To shine a spotlight on how engineering can go green, the Kettering Entrepreneur Society is hosting a week long environmental event on campus.

Kettering University’s Entrepreneur Society (KES) is going green with Green Week 2008, from June 2-6 in the Campu Center. The week-long event is designed to raise awareness about green technology and major environmental issues facing the world today, and show students how they can get involved with green initiatives.

The kickoff to Green Week is Monday, June 2, with t-shirts, banners, balloons, and a showcase of what the week is about. On Tuesday the focus is fuel cells and the latest fuel cell technology.

Wednesday features recycling and what Kettering is doing to recycle on campus, and a presentation by Kettering alumnae Rachel Charron’06, an environmental chemist with General Motors.

Music is the theme of Thursday and sustainability wraps up the week on Friday with examples of how green initiatives become sustainable solutions.

National Instruments has made a donation of hardware/software valued over $4000 to the event to be given to students through a contest we will be having.
