    The Missouri S&T Solar House Design Team finished in fourth place in the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2017 Solar Decathlon, held Oct. 5–15 in Denver.

    The team’s house, called SILO, was one of 11 entries in the design competition. Entries in the Solar Decathlon were judged by a panel of experts in 10 categories, ranging from appliances and architecture to energy use and market potential.

    During the competition, members of the Order of the Golden Shillelagh, the university’s major donor society, toured the house as part of a weekend celebrating the organization’s 40th anniversary.
