    Extreme  Home  Makeover:  Environmental  Edition    Your  Challenge:    Congratulations,  you  just  won  a  piece  of  land  right  in  the  heart  of  LA!  Your  challenge  is  to  create  an  eco-‐conscious  house,  designed  on  Google  SketchUp,  which  takes  into  consideration  structures  that  pertain  to  the  following:  infrastructure,  water,  waste  management,  and  energy.    This  project  will  take  8  weeks  to  complete  and  every  week  you  will  gather  evidence  to  influence  your  design  decisions.    You  will  then  build  a  3D  model  house  on  Google  SketchUp  implementing  your  design  choices.    Finally,  you  will  propose  your  plan  to  the  “city”  for  approval,  giving  reasoning  for  all  of  your  house  features.        Calendar  of  Events:

    Tracking  Sheet  Expectation:  After  each  task,  you  will  add  data  to  your  tracking  sheet  to  inform  your  design  choices.    In  the  box  “What  did  I  learn”  you  will  write  a  brief  description  of  what  you  learned  from  the  task.      In  the  box  “Rationale  for  design  choice”  state  your  design  choice  and  write  how  the  data  from  the  task  influenced  your  design.    Finally,  you  will  modify  the  house  drawing  on  the  back  with  your  design  choice.

     Hold  on  to  the  Water!!!  

     Challenge:    Your  house  is  located  on  the  top  of  a  hill.      This  is  problematic  when  it  comes  to  capturing    “freshwater”  to  water  your  garden.    Your  challenge    is  to  design  a  water  catch  system  for  your  house.      Your  goal  is  to  have  the  least  amount  of  water    runoff  collected  at  the  bottom  of  the  hill  in  the    “storm  drain”  at  the  end  of  a  rainstorm.    You  will  model  this  by  using  the  materials    below.    There  will  be  a  bucket  placed  at  the  bottom  of  the  hill  to  simulate  the  storm  drain  collecting  water.        Materials:
