We are currently working on a computer based learning situation in which students must build their own home powered by renewable energy sources.
The hands-on version of this project was developed in collaboration with students from the École polyvalente Saint-Jérôme in Québec and presented at Canada’s science teacher’s festival Science on Stage in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in August 2009.
The grade 8 level student activity book, teacher’s guide and other documents are available under the following links:

Students, teachers and chair with award winning environmentally friendly house project. February 2009. École polyvalente Saint-Jérôme, Québec.
The project is being modified for grade 10 students and will include creating functional electrical systems inside the house coupled to a functional power generator.
It is our goal to present this project at the Sarawak 2010 International Conference in Malaysia as an example of a high school science project promoting regreening of our planet.
