Green Building Design

As we move into the second semester, we’ll be continuing our unit on structural engineering by exploring how to keep buildings at a comfortable temperature for occupants regardless of the season.  Students will we’ll be examining concepts around thermal energy (heat) such as how and why heat flows, insulators & conductors, and active & passive solar heating. We'll also be conducting an experiment using different types of insulation to help clarify the role that insulation plays in designing energy efficient buildings. 

 

Important Dates:
