Ecovillage = a community whose inhabitants seek to live according to ecological principles, causing as little impact on the environment as possible.
Would you like to be an engineer who designs and builds an ecovillage (model)? Live in a way that is better for the world around you, without limiting your life experiences? In this class, we will investigate alternative energies that can be used to meet our living needs/wants- electricity, water, food, housing, community, etc. Then, we will create a small eco-aware community, incorporating renewable energy. We will design, plan, and construct a working (to the extent possible) model of our village. We will build circuits converting solar power into electricity, build energy efficient housing, design an efficient food supply strategy, and much more...
