Go Green Design Challenge
October 24 @ 10:00 am - October 25 @ 5:00 pmFree
What can you design to make your home more sustainable?
Families, join us at the Go Green Design Challenge, and put your imagination and creativity to the test in this free, sustainability design challenge!
At the virtual kickoff, on Saturday morning, October 24 at 10:00am, you’ll receive a rundown of the challenge guidelines, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the Pepco WaterShed Sustainability Center. Then use common household materials to come up with a prototype of an environmental-friendly invention that would make your home more sustainable. Your idea might involve the creative re-design of an existing item, like a more efficient window or appliance, or something entirely new.
