Annapolis, MD – From July 7th – 25th this summer, 50+ middle and high school students from Annapolis, Baltimore and surrounding areas will join forces with military veterans, building experts, educators and the sustainability leaders from SustainaFest to take on the unique and exciting challenge of building a mobile, hi-tech, hyper- efficient, and sustainable “Tiny House”. This 210 square foot, off-grid construction marvel will demonstrate the latest in sustainable building materials and green technology including solar electricity, rainwater filtration, and innovative interior design to maximize space and efficiency. The project will take place over three weeks at The Key School in Annapolis as part of its Summer Camp program. A few slots remain for students in Grade 6 and up to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. After completion, the house will be brought to schools, festivals and events to showcase sustainable shelter and promote SustainaFest’s Student Sustainability Lab program.
