|CUA STUDENTS CHALLENGED TO DESIGN SUSTAINABLE SHUTTLE BUS SHELTERS
Following the success of the on-campus solar picnic table competition in 2010, this year's contest aims to cut down on the use of cars on campus by creating visible and comfortable shelters for people to wait for University shuttles. The contest challenges students to create shelters that are easy to find and designed to provide information on the shuttle bus service on campus. They also must function without using any outside power sources -- solar panels and batteries are suggested materials. To read the full story, click here.
