We are a diverse, interdisciplinary team of students, faculty, and community members of the University of Maryland – College Park. Our team has been on a two-year mission to redefine the housing industry, using the skills we learn in class in new creative and collaborative methods. Our students are stepping out of their academic silos, working cohesively to achieve a single goal, and are gaining real work experience to bridge the gap between the academy and the profession. We are the next generation of energy innovators – and reACT has given us the skills and abilities to lead us toward a sustainable future.
Over the past two years, our team has engaged nearly 400 University of Maryland community members, comprising of various levels of experience, as both students and professionals. Each student works with a sub-team (or more!) to help bring reACT to life.
