(Picture of a Solar House team working on a system design.)

Solar House group web site: http://www.solardecathlon.umn.edu/

One of 20 international teams invited to compete in Washington D.C. , this group is developing a house that relies only on solar power that is tailored to the Minnesota climate.

The team is broken down into 10 departments focusing on architecture, communications, commissioning, construction, marketing, interior design, logistics, procurement, solar integration, and structural engineering.

What is SCImagine!?
SCImagine emphasizes the Science & Engineering Library's role as an intellectual gathering place on campus. Each spring, the Library showcases University teaching, learning and research in the physical sciences and engineering, offering fascinating presentations and lively discussions.
