Sustainable Saltbox

Our team is from Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States. We are from Kent Career Tech Center, and are in the 9-12 age category. My team consists of one person (myself). I am a strong independent worker, therefore I am able to complete the task more effectively and efficiently on my own. What were some of the challenges you faced, and how did you solve them? Some of the challenges I faced include the wiring. I was not able to figure out how all of the wires connected from the solar cells to the windmill. Therefore, I was capable of using my resources (book, internet, etc.) to overcome my challenge. What were your design goals? Tell us about the features in your house: My design goal was to create the most efficient home possible. My home features 3 solar cells, sun heater, windmill, and garden all powered by the sun. What is your light source? The sun
