Dr. Annie Pearce, a key faculty member in the Department of Building Construction Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech has decided to “adopt” Camp LIGHT. Over the next 18 months, she and her Building Construction students at Virginia Tech will be developing a detailed environmental inventory of the site, including the creation of an automated data stream of environmental measurements from the site using renewable energy assessment equipment, solar radiation, wind speed and direction, rainfall, temperature, and humidity. The students will use various aspects of the site development to create student projects.
