TREX Featured in Spring Issue of MIT Spectrum
CEE’s Traveling Research Environmental Experiences program (TREX) is featured in the spring 2016 edition of MIT Spectrum, highlighting MIT’s continuous dedication towards education for a better world, a core component of the recently-launched MIT Campaign, Building a Better World. TREX students travel each year during the Independent Activities Period (IAP) to the Big Island of Hawaii to analyze the risks of human exposure to volcanic smog or “vog”. New this coming academic year, the TREX program will become a requirement for MIT students electing the Environmental Engineering Science minor to extend hands-on fieldwork benefits to their study.
