Students and faculty in the Physics and Astronomy Department and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department have been given an unusual opportunity. They will investigate energy monitoring, energy conservation, and sustainable housing in a grant-based project on campus.
Pensmore Foundation, chaired by Steven Huff '73, who is also chairman of TF Concrete Forming Systems, has given the College $150,000 to build the Energy Research Laboratory, a 26'x45' structure that will feature advanced building materials and technologies.
