        The tour was part of the students' research project on energy-efficient products, and was part of a nationwide energy education program called NEED (National Energy Education Department).

        Their teacher, Robin Handloser, is offering her home as the students' science lab. Mrs. Handloser is building a house, and her students are researching energy-efficient products to use in it.
