Using home construction as the context, students explore the processes of thermodynamics and energy efficiency. Each student will choose a region of the USA and a season (summer or winter) and design an energy efficient home. Through the course of designing their homes, students investigate the forms of heat transfer in homes, energy efficient strategies available to reduce heat transfer, and the differences in climate within our country.
