Alfred State College - Campus News
Alfred State students are poised to make their own run with one of the college’s alternative fuel vehicles – a green initiative about to meet the need for speed. A prime demonstration of project-based learning, the students have rebuilt or modified much of the car as they’ve learned to make it race ready. They’re raring to go, but are still in need of parts and supplies.
Associate Professor Wayne Bensley of the Alfred State Physical and Health Sciences Department was one of 18 people nationwide who was recently selected to attend the Nucleic Acid Chemistry workshop at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. This workshop is a part of the National Science Foundation-sponsored Chemistry Collaborations, Workshops and Communities of Scholars (cCWCS) program.
Alfred State is pleased to announce its partnership to become a part of the Center for Evaluation of Clean Energy Technology (CeCeT) that is implementing a photovoltaic (PV) and wind equipment test facility. The new PV and wind test centers will operate as the core of CeCeT’s network of renewable energy resources.
Recognized at the college’s employee recognition banquet were: Dr. Melvin Chambliss of Alfred Station, NY; Deborah Claire of Arkport, NY; Mark Payne of Canisteo, NY; Charlene McGregor of Canisteo, NY; and Lieutenant Scott Bingham. Each received a certificate and a monetary gift.
