Mean Green House Design Competition & Resources

Here's a great challenge for Years 5 - 10 who are interested in sustainability, architecture, solar energy and/or design.

"How well are you preparing your students to deal with the energy-based sustainability issues of the present and future?

"The Mean Green House Competition offers a very comprehensive, in-depth inquiry that really engages students to meet these challenges through informed design of a sustainable energy house."

The organisers have highlighted the ways this challenge links to the NZ Curriculum.

There are some great free resources available to schools to help students with this, including free 3D modelling software.
