WPI is leading TEAM OCULUS, an African-American team with partner universities ENSIAS -RABAT, ENSAM-MEKENES (Morocco) and AUST – ABUJA (Nigeria0 to compete in the first Solar Decathlon Africa Competition to be held in September 2019 in Ben Guerir, Morocco. We are one of the 20 university team finalists selected for the competition. Team OCULUS has designed a geodetic inspired house using design principles and materials that simplify and lower the cost of net-zero-energy housing. We have completed our house design and have shipped our container to Morocco! Our students and faculty will be traveling to Morocco this summer to construct the house and compete in the SDA competition in Ben Guerir! We invite you to come learn about our experience in the SDA2019 and what we have learned from SD-China2013.
