Description

Support UNLV's Solar Decathlon team at the 2017 competition in person or in social media. 

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a life-changing competition for collegiate students and an intensive course in sustainability for consumers.

Collegiate teams spend almost two years designing and building energy-efficient houses powered by the sun. In the final competition, the teams and their houses go head to head in 10 contests to determine an overall winner.

UNLV’s 2017 Solar Decathlon Team

UNLV’s team is one of 12 university teams worldwide participating in the 2017 competition. A universitywide collaboration, the team includes faculty and students from multiple UNLV colleges currently including the School of Architecture, the College of Allied Health Sciences, the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering, and the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration.
