Inspiring People to Care for the Earth

Green Building - STEM Workshop Print E-mail

GrBldgWkshp10-2010_001Have you heard the buzz about "Green Buildings"?

Learn about Green Building Design, Engineering, Construction, and High Performance Operation:

  • See a green roof and learn how it's constructed (how do native plants with foot-long roots grow in a 4-6" tall container?) and works to reduce flooding
  • Learn how much water can be stored under the permeable paver parking lot at Elmhurst College
  • Learn the difference between solar panels (PV) and solar hot water
  • Experience "good" indoor air quality and learn what product ingredients are bad for people and the environment...and why.
  • And so much more!
Join us for an exciting day filled with hands-on, up-close and personal experiences with green roofs, bioswales, permeable pavement, solar panels, geothermal HVAC systems, wind turbines & more! You've heard of LEED certification; we'll teach you about the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification process and the role the design process plays in ensuring superior building performance for people and the environment.
