This fall, KI Senior Design Instructor Paul McKone designed and taught INTEG 375 Special Topics: Hands-on Sustainability, a real-world project course to rescue objects from the waste stream, determine why they were discarded, suggest how to refurbish them, and propose how to put them into the hands of those who can use them.
