PSTAT: Promoting Sustainability Transportation Among Teens- US EPA P3 Program (Education Engagement Project)
EPA’s P3-people, Prosperity and the planet- Program is a unique competition that is open to teams of college/university students working to design solutions for sustainable future. The project intended students’ teams to design and construct an electrically assisted bicycle, commonly known as an e-bike, that would fulfill the criteria set for a competition of the e-bikes’ performance at the end of the project in UTK campus. Evaluation on environmental, human health and economic impact were conducted to quantitatively display the impact of various commuting choices, emphasizing the current transportation situation in the United States. The project displayed that a project does result in a measurable change in the students’ stated preferences and attitudes influencing students to reevaluate their transportation choices by simply exposing them to knowledge of lower impact modes of transportation.
