The Social aspects of the UConn STEAM research project has two considerations
- Social Interaction and
- Socialized Ideologies.
Both will be framed in response to the exposure and possibilities that the Tree represents in public space. Social interaction, in this case, observes response to a specific object, as essential for understanding how people, together, create and experience social life in relation to the physical environment around them. Socialized ideologies are relevant to this study as they relate to the fundamental issues that arise from particular values and beliefs when considering the development of renewable energy.
