Why, Vermont Tech’s mechanical cow, of course.  When up and running, the anaerobic digester will process things like manure and crop waste from farms, as well as nonfarm organic material like yogurt whey, into biogas (primarily carbon dioxide and methane) that can then be converted into heat and electricity.  Construction of the digester, the first of its kind in the United States, began in July, and immediately VTC had a hands-on learning forum for many of its programs.

Vermont Tech Professor Carolyn Stannard-Carlo was recently honored with the college’s most prestigious faculty recognition, the Harold G. Wirtz Master Teaching Award. The Wirtz Award celebrates the legacy of Harry Wirtz, who was a professor of civil and environmental engineering technology. The annual award is presented to a faculty member that stands as a role model for other faculty members and conducts themselves with the highest academic standards. Qualities of a Master Teacher Award recipient include a deep mastery of the subject matter, engagement with students at all levels of preparation, fostering intellectual curiosity and growth, and maintaining strong collegial relationships with the Vermont Tech community.

On May 27, installation of Vermont’s first parklet commenced in Montpelier. In partnership with Montpelier Alive, fifteen Vermont Tech architecture students designed the parklet, acquired permits and built the small deck. This parklet will remain in Montpelier for two summers, and the city has dedicated six parking spaces for future parklets to be built. The structure is intended for pedestrians to have a place to sit and socialize in the warm months of the year.
