Leading Innovative Energy Design

What is the ambitious goal of this project?

Work with Idaho National Laboratory researchers at Boise State to design solutions for our sustainable energy future!

Gain insight into who you are as a learner and forge your path of transformation as a leader. We will focus on learning who we are as individuals and how our interactions impact the way we work in transdisciplinary teams. We will explore the process of design and innovative solutions to address our future energy needs. Activities will include an overnight field trip to the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES)-Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to further explore research and employment opportunities in the energy sector.

Experience Gained

Develop team research collaborations, learn the research process and the process of design and implementation, develop your career readiness, explore opportunities at Idaho National Laboratory
