A group of students from the Colorado School of Mines bested 17 other teams from around the world to claim the top spot in the first Solar Decathlon ever held in Africa.

See how they cracked that difficult nut: to design and build on site an affordable, solar-powered net-zero-energy model house uniquely adapted to the North African climate and location.

Hear what allowed them to win and what their project looks like and what it achieves from Lucy Davis and Prof. Tim Ohno.

Please note that we're joining with the JeffCO Chapter of CRES as this event happens on the 3rd Thursday in the week before Thanksgiving.
