“My favorite part about the EcoHouse is when they showed us the energy saving light bulbs and the ones that use more energy, even though they aren’t any brighter.”
--8th Grader, IS 364, Brooklyn

What can you do at home to conserve energy? “What I can do at home to conserve energy is to have a solar powered fan, so that the fan gets energy from the sun. Also I should cut off all the lights when I’m not using them to save energy.”
--8th Grader, IS 364, Brooklyn

“We at the New York Hall of Science think that the EcoHouse project will be highly educational for kids from the New York region, inviting them to learn, in an engaging and interactive environment, about how they can live more energy efficiently. The topic is critical, and making this personal connection with young people is a great and imaginative strategy.”
--Eric Siegel, Director and Chief Content Officer,
New York Hall of Science, Queens

“The EcoHouse is a fantastic means for people of all ages to learn in an immediate and hands-on way about the nitty-gritty of how sustainable buildings work. We’re excited to have Green City Force Corps Members discover the EcoHouse as part of their training and to support the launch of this great resource in whatever way we can.”
--Lisbeth Shepherd, Executive Director,
Green City Force, Brooklyn
