Solarfest set for June 21 at Public House Brewing Company

   "Solarfest" will take place on Friday, June 21 at 6 p.m. at the Public House Brewing Company located at 600 N. Rolla Street in Rolla, Missouri. The event will include live bands,a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and delicious BBQ.
   Proceeds of the event will go to support the Missouri S&T Solar House Team as they travel to California in September to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013.
   The Missouri S&T Solar House Team is one of 14 teams under the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center on campus in Rolla. The team is comprised of over 100 students who design and build a solar house to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon.  The team is also challenged with keeping an accurate budget and fundraising the almost $500,000 anticipated cost. For the Solar Decathlon 2013, Missouri S&T is proud to present the Chameleon House, an adaptable living environment.  The house is currently under construction and will travel to Irvine, CA in September to compete.
