This spring marks the 16th year of the Rubenstein School Greening of Rubenstein Interns class. The class is taught by Research Associate Gary Hawley, with help this year from mentors Colleen Armstrong, manager of the UVM Greenhouse; Lecturer David Raphael, landscape architect; Michelle Keller of Burlington Electric; Rich Wollbach, UVM energy consultant; and electrical engineering student Bert Henderson. 

Student interns completed 5 projects that focused on increasing the energy efficiency and environmental sustainability of the Aiken Center and other Rubenstein School buildings and helped to build the vision for the Rubenstein School Net Zero Energy initiative. 

Interns will give their final project presentations on May 4, 2017 from 6:00 to 7:30pm in 311 Aiken Center. All members of the Rubenstein School community are encouraged to attend!
