We’ll investigate renewable energy sources, think up ways to be kind to the planet through our daily choices and actions, and explore how best to use green design strategies in our very own building designs! Then, we’ll draw-up our ideas and make them come to life. By the end of the program, each student will have built, by hand, a model of their very own green building.
