About Me[edit]

Trevor Sterrett
I currently have one year left at Humboldt State where I will graduate with a environmental science degree with the energy and climate option. I have lived in California all my life and plan to remain in California.

Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit]

  • Im very interested in how small scale technology can augment ones energy needs, like soler panels or micro hydro.
  • Im interested in the construction of technology, what materials are used and how are they designed to create better efficiency.
  • Community needs, with the use of appropriate technology large problems can be solved using small scale technology with less cost then traditional methods.

Experience in Appropriate Technology[edit]

  • Simple solutions, I practice appropriate behavior everyday by turning off lights, turning down the heater, bike travel, etc.
  • I worked for a appropriate landscape company doing things like native plant selection, decretive soler lighting, low flow drip systems.
  • School, I have learned a lot with very interdisciplinary studies including, thermodynamics, oceanography, physics, chemistry, and i can apply theos skills to appropriate technology.
