Missouri S&T 2002 Solar House Tour
The Missouri S&T Solar House Team is a student design team that seeks to better the University, community, and environment through focused research, public education, and sustainable design and to expand team members’ knowledge regarding group dynamics and the integration of architecture and technology with dwelling space design and function while familiarizing members with product development, marketing, and business skills through self-administration of business duties necessary to run the team which will prepare members for leadership roles in industry.
We strive to further research on renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and to promote an eco-friendly lifestyle. As a student design team, we are rewarded for our work with a unique and priceless experience that will benefit us in our future careers. We are one of two taems to be accepted four consecutive times into the prestigious Solar Decathlon Competition hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy. For this competition, we design, engineer, construct, and market a solar powred home. We partner with numerous corporations for support, and display a wide range of their products in our homes.
This house is the team’s first Solar Decathlon entry.
