I am looking for the best ideas for a project for my high school Green Building class
I have been teaching a green building course to high school kids for 4 years. We design green buildings that are enegy efficient using the 3D BIM software Revit and learn all the latest construction techniques and standards. A lot to learn!
What I am looking for is a good hands on project ideas to apply all the theory and design.
In the past we have designed and built a passive solar super insulated chicken coop, full size wall sections of different ways to frame 1′ thick walls, scale house models using advanced framing, double studded and i joist walls and a dome greenhouse for the science departments aquaponics class.
I figured why not throw it out there:
What would you have liked to do? What would you want your kid doing?
What do people in the industry think?
Looking forward to ideas. Thanks in advance!
