EPIC is organizing a field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry’s Future Energy Chicago exhibit. Attending students will team up and collaborate in an immersive simulation to help decide Chicago’s energy future. The simulation includes a collaborative series of mini-games, where teams must work to maximize their energy efficiency while managing the trade-offs of their choices. The Simulation Lab uses real-world information and data from the subjects it covers and is updated to reflect current prices and conditions. The event is open to current University of Chicago undergraduate students with a valid ID. Registration is required and space is limited. Register here.
