Participating teams are provided with online Self-Learning Modules in several technical topic areas related to building science, energy efficiency, renewable energy, water sufficiency, cost estimation, etc. The topics covered in the Self Learning Modules mirror the ten contests in the challenge and help teams develop the foundational knowledge required to address the contests. These include energy performance, heat transfer, and the building envelope, passive design, thermal comfort, and indoor air quality, natural ventilation, load calculation for rightsizing HVAC systems, HVAC system types and low-energy cooling, cost estimation and financial feasibility, water sufficiency, and resilient design and embodied carbon. The modules are available to the participants on the Moodle (Learning Management System) platform. They explain the concepts and principles for each topic area through a combination of videos and quizzes and introduce the learners to calculations and problem-solving methods. Each module also contains a list of additional resources including design and sizing tools. Each module can be completed in less than 1 hour. The Self Learning Modules are meant to arm the students with sufficient knowledge to collaborate with their team members on the building design, and to get a deeper understanding by accessing the additional resources and tools.
