Environmental Impact

We are experiencing the ramifications of living in an industrialized age marked by short-term thinking. The impact of global climate change and air and water pollution has reached all corners of the Earth. This winter was the hottest recorded in 130 years. News of climate change impact can be overwhelming, but according to the 2021 IPCC Climate Change Report, there is still time to get the planet back into a proper alignment! For that to happen, we all need to investigate our relationship with the environment and consider ways to make a difference. 

Let's start small and think about changes we can make and solutions we can design here at Fessy. Using innovative approaches, materials, and technologies, you will learn how to design devices to measure environmental health, protect humans (or animals) from ramifications from polluted environments, and/or create devices to improve the environment's health.
