Tours are available for the public and for NC Schools: 3rd-12th graders.
All tours include an informational component about the passive solar technology used in the house and, if desired, an age- and grade-appropriate, hands-on, engineering activity. 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 your experience. Tours generally last approx. 30 minutes depending on questions and the engineering activity takes another 45 minutes, for a total of 75 minutes per event.
Maximum number of guests or students/tour: 40
