By popular demand- this is now a major class! Inspired and created in conjunction with artist Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun Project, this course teaches students to use unconventional materials to create sustainable solutions and environmentally-focused art and design. Students will create things out of nothing, using materials such as sunlight, recycled and found objects. In the beginning of the summer, the class will decide together the projects they would like to work on. The results are unexpected and the process is fun! In past years, students worked as a team to make a wind powered air conditioner, a bike powered generator and a solar BBQ. This class is open to thinkers from all disciplines.

“I enjoyed the tasks that we had to complete using mostly things we found on our own.” -Luke
