Published in: MIT News on April 22, 2010 - By Morgan Bettex

A group of 58 MIT students, alumni and staff recently returned from a five-day trip to Abu Dhabi to study the practical application of technology for renewable energy solutions.

The trip was part of Terrascope, a yearlong program for first-year students that begins each fall with a mission to solve an “unsolvable” or very complex problem. The students spend the fall semester designing a viable solution and then travel during spring break to a location related to the complex problem where they experience the reality of the solutions they have proposed.
