It is an attractive Park Bench/Study Spot placed at a peaceful location on Spring Creek with two seats.
It includes two USB charging stations for both everyday use and as an emergency power source if the campus power goes out.
It is a full functioning Weather station with data publicly available (above)
Soon it will have an after dark and emergency self powered safety light.
Other sensors and possibly more power outputs will be added as it is intended to be a base for future sustainability projects
Many thanks to all the people involved in a truly campus collaborative effort.
