Civic Works’ Tiny House
While visiting Civic Works in Kidscape, view their fully functional tiny house. The Mobile Energy Education Center is a 200-square foot tiny house on wheels that features more than a dozen “green” and energy-saving materials or technologies. The Baltimore Energy Challenge, a collaboration between the nonprofit Civic Works and the Baltimore City Office of Sustainability, educates students on green technology and sustainable living and inspires residents to become more energy efficient. The Mobile Energy Education Tiny House was constructed by Baltimore City youth who are learning hands-on construction skills and earning a GED through Civic Works’ YouthBuild Program.
