The team is extremely excited to see the Nest Home come to life. This year, we have learned from our past competitions and are focused on moving forward, building on the foundation of our predecessors. We have a strong team of students, advisers, and professionals working together to take this project to new heights. Join us on our journey to the Solar Decathlon 2015!

We promote sustainable living throughout the community by building solar-powered homes.
All of our homes are built and furnished with as many sustainable products as possible. The tenants of the Solar Village are chosen due to their dedication to live a sustainable lifestyle.
The Solar House Design Team designs and builds each home so that it may regulate its environment using passive solar techniques. This thoughtful design process allows home to reduce the amount of energy needed to regulate the interior environment.
Each house employs solar panels to produce abundant energy for the home as well as a solar thermal system to produce hot water.
Watch the Construction of the Nest Home
Watch LIVE as The Missouri S&T Solar House Design Team constructs the Nest Home for the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2015!
As you watch, you will quickly notice that much of the work done on the house is done by the students on the Solar House Design Team. These countless hours spent constructing the house are hours set aside from classes, homework, athletics, and other extracurricular activities associated with being a college student.
