Students work for a renewable resources research firm that is searching for an electricity free way to heat room in a home. As researchers, they must design, build, and test a two-room unit that uses the sun to heat one room and maintain a temperature for the other room. Through this process, the students will learn about solar energy and various forms of heat transfer. They will utilize the engineering design process to design, build, and test their two-room homes. This kit contains enough materials for 10 students working in teams of four.
