Solar table provides eco-friendly workspace

In 2015, Michigan State University installed a solar-powered picnic table in the South Campus Courtyard, providing students with a sustainable location to charge electronic devices.

The student group, Sustainable Spartans, gather around the newly installed solar picnic table.

The installation of the solar-powered table was championed by the student group known as the Sustainable Spartans, who received funding from MSU Sustainability to finance the project.

In celebration of their achievement, the Sustainable Spartans held an Environmental Gala at the Wonders Kiva, which included several guest speakers, refreshments, a photo shoot and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
