Today we kicked off the 2013 Bass Connections in Energy project teams with a full meeting of the team leaders and the students. Every project team has both undergraduate and graduate student representation and each team has to have students and leadership from at least two disciplines. Over 45 students and leaders were present representing the majority of the schools on campus: Pratt, Nicholas, Trinity, Law, Sanford, and Fuqua, as well as the Nicholas Institute and RTI. Each project team will be working together on a project over the next year. I’m coleading a team working on the energy disaggregation problem, but there are teams looking at everything from behavioral science questions in energy to energy and peacekeeping through film. You can read more about the energy teams and the teams in other themes at the Bass Connections Central website.
