Sacramento State’s Sustainable Technology Outdoor/Optimization Research Center (STORC) is a highly collaborative teaching and learning model. STORC encourages innovation and facilitates teamwork between faculty and students from multiple educational disciplines by promoting, supporting, and housing ongoing sustainable technology research projects within a common functional space (e.g., Aquaponics, Alternative Energy Technologies, Composting, Bio-digestion, Water Technologies, etc.).
Because numerous research projects coexist within the same functional footprint, multiple technology integration can occur, making it possible for students and laypersons—in addtion to researchers and educators—to understand how sustainable technologies function and how apparent dissimilar technologies might contribute to the enhanced performance of other technologies. As a practical, living laboratory, and a multi-disciplinary center for learning, STORC synergistically enhances the learning experience of all who venture exploration of the facility’s projects.
We encourage your exploration of STORC and welcome your sincere feedback.
