The Seabury Hall Engineering program is designed to expose students to the field of engineering via project based learning.  From inception to a final product, students learn what it means to "engineer a solution".  Through an interdisciplinary approach, students discover how to plan, research, communicate, and create.

    The prevailing theme is in Energy Systems Engineering, with projects geared toward the use of alternative forms of energy.  Since the programs inception in 2006 the students have successfully converted two internal combustion engine cars into fully functional Electric Vehicles (EV).  Projects for this year include a purpose-built EV, waste vegetable oil to biodiesel processing, cultivation of a biofuel crop, transportation using biofuels, and a closed-loop aquaponics system.  Also new this year is our space program in which we hope to explore the outer edges of our atmosphere.

    Our hope is to raise global awareness within our youth and develop leaders who can design and implement energy systems to respond to the worlds growing energy needs.
