BIUST STEM Festival Research & Innovation Symposium 2019

New Era College of Arts, Science and Technology participated at the 2019 BIUST STEM Festival, Research and Innovation Symposium which was held from the 3rd – 6th June 2019 at Palapye. The event was held under the theme “STEM driven economy: Transforming research into profitable products and services”.

New Era College exhibited a revolutionary construction method that garnered a lot of interest from the public as it embraced using materials freely provided by nature such as sand, long sand bags and barbed wire. The building method comes from years of meditation, hands-on research and development by architect and CalEarth founder Nader Khalili. This research provided a base for the Construction Department at New Era College to put forth a method of sustainable provision of shelter to the less privileged and those looking to build an affordable and sustainable home.
