Ball State University is collaborating through its Center for Energy Research/Education/Service with the developers of the Solar Farm at the Indianapolis Airport (IND Solar Farm) to create content for:

  1. information kiosks to be housed in the civic plaza of the airport terminal
  2. a geo-caching smart phone app for traveler access to information on the project
  3. sample illustrations of the application of this technology to communities across Indiana
