SIU Carbondale Innovation Fellows built an interdisciplinary and cross-university team of students for improving and transforming the SIU Green Roof into a multidisciplinary innovation hub for Agricultural, Engineering, and all students and faculty across campus to collaborate on innovative projects. The Green Roof Team's engineering teams are installing low-cost emerging technology projects from wind energy, solar energy, and machine learning fields. We aspire to represent what it means to be a Saluki!
With our projects we aim to achieve the following goals:
- Multidisciplinary Learning Facility for academic research, coursework, and internal organizations.
- Increased research projects’ space utilization.
- Display SIU’s innovative culture through student-initiated projects.
