Title: The Learning Barge: Environmental + Cultural Ecologies on the Elizabeth River

The University of Virginia team, in collaboration with community partners, is designing and fabricating an off-the-grid, floating field station.  Powered by solar and wind energy, the design collects rainwater, filters gray water with native plants, and utilizes recycled and renewable materials.  The integrated environmental education curriculum teaches about sustainability and estuarine habitat restoration.
