Freezer Challenge (In Progress)


"The International Laboratory Freezer Challenge promotes sample accessibility, sample integrity, reduced costs, and energy efficiency by harnessing a spirit of competition within and between laboratories. Challenge participants use well-evidenced criteria and best practices that support science quality and resilience while minimizing total costs and environmental impacts of sample storage."

This project received $9,900 in Student Sustainability Committee funding in December 2018 to kickstart the program.


This is a Student Sustainability Committee supported project.
