Smart Competition

Competition Resources Links

Students are encouraged to use a mix of resource material and technical experts to assure their gym redesign, addition of power generation capabilities, the impact of their designs on the energy use by the school, and the installation of power generation technology on the campus add to the neighborhood smart grid.  Students should consider a spectrum of resources, including reference books, periodicals, the Internet, technical and professional societies, industry, government and university sources, recognized experts and faculty as information is gathered to help develop a solution to competition challenges.
 
In addition, students have access to the technical library and video tutorials of Bentley Systems (www.bentley.com).
