Hunt Haught Hall 212

Students of all ages across West Virginia are being recruited to help with solar energy research. Fairmont State University is the headquarters of the West Virginia Brigade of the Solar Army, which is searching for cheap, abundant metal-oxide combinations that can help sunlight make clean-burning hydrogen fuel from water. Our lab has been adapting and refining sample preparation methods for informal settings. Community outreach involving family units, schools across WV, our campus community, and other organizations reinforces the citizen-science mission of the Solar Army. Expanding community engagement introduces students and other individuals to renewable energy and provides a unique opportunity to conduct scientific research and contribute to the betterment of society. Passport participants have the opportunity to get further involved if interested.
