GK-12 Personnel

Hannah West, Rainwater Harvesting
GK-12 Fellow (Partnered with Wendy Wilson, Start H.S.)

I received my B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Toledo.  During my time as an undergrad, I participated in a research project involving rainwater harvesting with one of my professors, Dr. Defne Apul.  I enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue my research and pursue my masters in Civil Engineering with a focus on Environmental Engineering.   My current research project involves determining the carbon implications and energy emissions of using rainwater to flush toilets and irrigate.  I enjoyed my time as a GK-12 fellow.  This opportunity has provided me the skills to communicate technical information to a broader audience.  I will miss interacting with the high school students as well as the GK-12 staff.
