Energy House Webinar

Presenter: Cori Nelson a middle school science teacher and a member of NEED’s Teacher Advisory Board.
Looking for a fun way for your students to learn about energy conservation? Join Cori Nelson for our next NMLSTA Webinar on NEED’s Energy House activity. This STEM project from www.need.org will challenge students to use various materials to insulate a cardboard house, test its energy efficiency, and evaluate economic returns.
The students must stick to time, budget, and materials constraints, which makes this an excellent engineering design project. The students must also adhere to strict building code criteria which will challenge them to consider the best placement of windows and doors. The completed houses may be tested in a variety of ways to determine their efficiency. Students consider the initial cost of the materials used and then calculate the return on their investment when looking at the energy savings over time. This lesson is available as a free download for teachers to access, and the materials are inexpensive and easy to obtain.
The webinar will also include an introduction to other curriculum available on the NEED
