Students explore energy conversion and design a passive solar house based on criteria and constraints. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to build a passive solar house, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and supporting multiple solutions.
