KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Students in the Introduction to Engineering class at OIT are building passive solar chicken coops right now and they’re seeking donations to support the projects. Students design and build the green-energy chicken coops to accommodate three to five average size laying hens. The public will be able to judge them Wednesday, March 21 from 8:00 a.m.to 10:00 a.m. for best overall coop, most passive, most sustainable, and most high-tech.
