Go Green Design Challenge

October 24-25, 2020

What can you design to make your home more sustainable?

KID Museum and Pepco are teaming up to bring you a free, family design challenge!

Families are invited to use common household materials to come up with a prototype of their own environmental-friendly invention. Your idea might involve the creative re-design of an existing item, like a more efficient window or appliance, or something entirely new.

Join us Saturday morning, October 24 beginning at 10:00am for the virtual kick-off, where you’ll receive a rundown of the challenge guidelines, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the Pepco WaterShed Sustainability Center. Then put your imagination and your design skills to work!

Not sure where to get started? Our maker educators will share a few skill-building videos to help you out.

  • Spend as much time as you like designing your invention
  • Submitted inventions will be featured in a virtual Design Showcase
  • All official entries will also be automatically entered into a raffle of prizes

*If you sleep late and miss the premiere, don’t worry! We’ll have it posted all weekend long.


Submissions are due by Sunday, October 25 at 5pm EST.
