More about this image
Supported by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education program, ATEEC directly engages students by introducing them to environmental and energy technology concepts through the Interactive Learning Lab and the Nahant Marsh Education Center, located on a 513-acre wetland along the Mississippi River. The lab provides students with hands-on activities in the biodiesel, energy efficiency, solar power and wind energy fields. The centerís accelerated curriculum prepares students for outdoor recreation and natural resources management careers.
