The Solar Science Center is a conceptual design proposal for a large solar powered structure dedicated to the science of the sun and to all of the technology used to harness its energy for the good of all of humanity. The Solar Science Center features a 160 foot tall central cone shaped structure, topped with a large array of photovoltaic solar cells, which track the movements of the sun throughout the day. This sun tracking array is the primarily power source for the science center. Whenever an excess of energy is collected, it is sent into the local electrical power grid. Passive solar heating, cooling, and natural daylighting techniques are also used throughout the structure. In addition, rainwater is collected off of the roof, stored in underground containers, recycled, and used in and around the Solar Science Center. Small trees planted in moveable containers are plac...
