Students show off sustainable designs at DuPage County challenge
A college dormitory with a farm, home insulation made from newspaper and cargo freight panels for siding were a few of the ideas on display this month by local high school students at the seventh-annual Sustainable Design Challenge at DuPage County’s JTK Administration Building in Wheaton.
One design featured a model for permeable concrete designed to collect rain that could be stored underground. The “Eco House” by Glenbard East students Sara Smith, Fatima Sakrani and Katie Czervionke also included bamboo flooring, newspaper insulation and wallpaper in the form of recycled paper.
“I wouldn’t mind having a house like this,” Sakrani said.
