Energy Conversion and Conservation
The P3 (People, Prosperity, and the Planet) competition is a national collegiate sustainability design competition sponsored by the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Since 2012, we have integrated the P3 competition with the capstone design course of Clean Energy Systems track in mechanical engineering as an effective educational vehicle for introducing the concept of sustainable design. This paper presents the senior design project to demonstrate how a collegiate design competition could effectively motivate and engage students. The paper explains the design challenges, the design process, examples of the design work, and the students’ performance evaluation.
