APSCC was invited to participate in the 9th Annual National Sustainable Design Expo held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The team were given an unique opportunity to showcase their contributions to advancing sustainability while discovering the sustainable technologies developed by more than 400 university students in engineering, sciences, law, economics, architecture and other fields. The Expo brought together a diverse group of scientists, engineers, and organization and business leaders to discuss innovations designed to advance economic growth while reducing environmental impact and to showcase their approaches to sustainability to the interested public.
Held in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol and the Washington Monument, the Expo was a truly inspiring exhibition of innovative technology for a sustainable future. The event featured a high-rise farm, a 3-in-1 solar cooker that heats and generates power, or simple water treatment filters for villages in Africa. P3 student projects exhibit alongside EPA programs, other government agencies, non-profit organizations and businesses to showcase their achievements. Thousands of enthusiastic visitors of all ages attended this 2-day “sustainability festival” to explore and share ideas with the students and professionals in the field.
