This article here describes mechanical trees that leaves are wind turbines. This allowed energy to be gathered from just a small breeze. It can’t make as much energy as a normal wind turbine, but it can get energy at a much smaller breeze. It is also much smaller making it easier to build, as well as being more aesthetic to look at. A major con is that it is very inviting for birds to sit on or make nests with and can cause harm to the birds. I think it’d be cool to look into getting a tree on campus.
I don’t know if this has changed, but last year I worked for AVI and a lot of food was thrown out at the end of the day. The food was perfectly fine, it just couldn’t be reused in the cafeteria. I know there are groups that go around to restaurants collecting the food that they can’t reuse so it doesn’t get thrown out. They take the food and give it to people who need it. I would love to see AVI getting involved with this program so food isn’t wasted. Especially with a buffet style of cafeteria, the amount of food that gets thrown out is really sad.
These really cool picnic tables have a solar panel above them instead of an umbrella. So students can sit outside, and have their devices charging. This allowed more students to work outside since they don’t have to go inside to charge their laptops. It looks really cool and helps save on electricity. They are expensive but it’d be cool if we could get something like this on campus.
