This class teaches students to use unconventional materials to create sustainable solutions and environmentally focused art and design. Students create things out of nothing, using materials such as sunlight and recycled and found objects. 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 barbecue. This class is open to thinkers from all disciplines.
