The Role of Building Science in High Performance Buildings (SESSION 1/2)
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 (10:00 AM - 11:30 AM) (PDT)
2 90-minute sessions (May 17 & 19) with homework in between. By registering for this event, you are committing to both sessions.
Course Description: Integrating building science into building performance means better indoor and outdoor environmental quality, increased building durability and resilience, and less risk for building owners, communities, and the planet. This course builds from high school level biology, chemistry, and physical science to building science principles and their application to superior building performance. The role that building science can play in building electrification is a key outcome of this course.
Learning Objectives: Explain how high school-level physical, chemical, and biological principles are expressed in buildings Provide at least two basic examples of building science in action in a typical home or office. Convey how building science influences building performance with at least two basic examples Assess the level of building performance of a student’s own home or office using class resources.
