Rebuilding the 2009 Solar House, Again
One year after
Tim Hight, chair and associate professor of the mechanical engineering department, has begun his initial outreach to freshmen engineers for the 2013 Solar Decathlon. He hopes they’ll be able to help rebuild the 2009 house, which would give them a taste of what the 2009 team endured and what they could expect in 2013.
“Some 30 freshman engineering students expressed interest and wanted to learn more about the Solar Decathlon. We’ll hold an informational session in the coming weeks,” says Hight.
He expects the house to be completely rebuilt by the end of the quarter.
