- GreenLight Solutions Foundation
- Virtual Service Opportunity & Info: Students join a GreenLight student-led sustainability project with a local business. The commitment is 5 hours per week for 13 weeks and follow our GreenLight GuideLines project process. Teams are of 3-5 students. We currently have projects lined up with Utopia Smart City, Microsoft, Shape Up US, and Valley Metro.
Microsoft's Circular Classroom GreenLight Project Team will present to high school students to give demonstrations of working hands-on with 3D printers and to up-cycle hard-to-recycle waste into school supplies, in order to teach circular economy concepts and provide technical education to lower-income areas. The GreenLight Project Team will initiate a "collect the cap program", which will process the bottle caps through a plastic shredder/extruder and feed them into a Protocycler, to produce filament for the 3D printer. Second, the team will develop a live video presentation. Next, the team will set up presentations for high schools in the west valley. Lastly, the team will present to the high school students virtually and provide any school supplies created during the demo to the school. This project may continue multiple semesters.
- Valley Metro:
Valley Metro is working with GreenLight on a four-phase project to increase shading around light rail stops. This semester is phase 3 of 4 and will focus on data analysis and reporting. The project will ask questions like: What are the stations that serve the most riders? Which stations are located in low-income areas and how can the new shading serve these areas too (equity portion)? This semester's goal will be to provide data analysis to identify 3-5 stations to move forward within phase four of the project, next semester's Design Studio.
- Shape Up US:
Shape Up US focuses on educating K-6th grade students and parents on nutrition, environmental, and holistic well-being. Students working on the GreenLight project with Shape Up will create a take-home guide for parents and their children on how to live a green lifestyle at home. This guide will be published by Shape Up to distribute to parents across the United States to promote more environmentally conscious homes and families!
- Utopia Smart City Project 1) Building Materials:
Utopia Smart City is an up and coming smart condominium community in East Mesa created out of shipping containers. Utopia Smart City developers want GreenLight to help analyze how and where to source building materials and shipping containers to utilize when building the community. The team will be taking factors such as lead times, mobility, and the ability to be re-deployed in different locations, into the selection process.
- Utopia Smart City Project 2) Crypto Energy Engagement:
Utopia Smart City is an up and coming smart condominium community in East Mesa created out of shipping containers. The City developers are looking to analyze the potential energy dynamics of storage and usage patterns of residents and how blockchain can help them incentivize lower residential energy usage. Blockchain technology, a ledger-based system of quantification, will be used for resident incentivization to use energy more efficiently. By researching alternative energy usage and storage applications of the block-chain network, the developers can harness the open-access information of said networks. The outcome of this project is to create a potential engagement program outline that would incentivize residents to use increase their energy usage efficiency by participating in the micro-economy; creating behavior change, lower utility usage, and lower energy costs for residents.
