AM PBL instructor David Mangus, of Hartford's Academy of Engineering and Green Technology, worked with high school students to send renewable energy systems to Nepal as part of their Nepal 2.0 project. This is the second time students have built and shipped energy systems to remote villages in Nepal. Once the supplies arrive in Nepal, they must be strapped to yaks and carried across mountains to reach their final destination.
