A decade ago, a group of innovative individuals at SIU established the first Green Roof onSouthern Illinois University Carbondale's Agriculture Building. We are dedicated to innovation in research and creativity on campus. Our project is transforming the SIU Green Roof into a multidisciplinary innovation hub for hands-on learning and teaching sustainability in the community and providing opportunities for future Salukis to explore their passion!
Our multidisciplinary and cross-university team of undergraduate and graduate students envision a green space for any student, regardless of major, to have opportunities to discover their passions. Our target audience are STEM students for actualizing their design and research. However, instead of asking for projects and involvement, our team is showcasing opportunities through unique engineering projects. These projects have inspired students to pursue renewable energy and sustainability related projects! Click Here to read our current impact.
We Need Your Help By Donating Towards Our Student Designed Renewable Energy Projects
We are a group of students from various disciplines and universities collaborating together to create change and transform a green space into a multidisciplinary innovation hub. This group is primarily composed of engineering, computer science, and STEM students working on the low-cost engineering projects to show and inspire students of the abundance of opportunities.
