TWC Students, Faculty, and Staff participate in The Jefferson Project at Lake GeorgeJune 27, 2013
At Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, The Jefferson Project at Lake George partners the pioneering experimental methods of student and faculty researchers at the Darrin Fresh Water Institute with students and faculty across the Rensselaer campus, including those conducting leading-edge data and analytics research within the university’s Tetherless World Constellation.
