NC State Solar House Tour Request
Tour Information for Teachers:
Teachers - 3rd through 12th Grade: All tours include an informational component about the passive solar technology used in the Solar House and an age- and grade-appropriate, hands-on, engineering activity for your students. We are happy to work with you to help meet the needs of your students and the educational outcomes you hope to achieve as a part of this experience. Tours generally last approximately 35-45 minutes depending on questions. The engineering activity will add another 30-45 minutes onto your time at the Solar House. Please note that a request for a specific time does not guarantee that we can accommodate that time for your tour; however, we will do our best to meet your needs.

Information on Tour Group Size:
Please be aware that the Solar House has limited space and can accommodate a maximum of 30 students in a single tour. If you have more than 30 students in your tour group, we will need to schedule multiple tour times to accommodate the entire group.
