Architectural Engineering Research

This program is funded by a National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Teachers Site grant and engages 10 secondary teachers in a 6-week research experience with a faculty member in architectural engineering.  These researchers consider both the human experience in buildings as well as building system efficiency. Teachers will conduct in research about buildings and will consider their school facilities as “Living Laboratories” in both fundamental and applied research on architectural engineering and science topics including indoor air quality, lighting effectiveness, thermal comfort, and energy efficiency. Teachers will use their research experience to co-design a unit of study intended to enhance his/her current curriculum.
