The Earthship Academy offers a textbook that includes the materials discussed in all of the classes given throughout every Academy Session. The following is partial list of Academy Classes: -History and Evolution of the Earthship Concept -Thermal/Solar Heating and Cooling -Water Harvesting in Earthships -Contained Sewage Treatment -Food Production in Earthships -Solar and Wind Electricity System -How to Read Earthship Construction Drawings -Earthship Types -Earthship Finishing Options and Techniques -Project Planning and Staging -Disaster Relief and Humanitarian Projects -Sustainable Retrofit and Conventional Homes   You will also have LABS:  Dozens of years of research and development have led to a simple yet effective combination of systems within the Earthship. The classroom lectures teach students about the design and function of each system. During the labs students learn the “nuts and bolts” of systems components and work hands-on with the materials that comprise each component. They also learn how to operate and care for an Earthship home and its systems. Earthship Academy labs include the following: -Solar Electric Wiring in Earthships -Water Organizing Module in Earthships -Earthship Maintenance -Modular Earthship Drawing Activity

lectures teach students about the design and function of each system.

During the labs students learn the “nuts and bolts” of systems components

and work hands-on with the materials that comprise each component. They

also learn how to operate and care for an Earthship home and its systems.

Earthship Academy labs include the following:

-Solar Electric Wiring in Earthships

-Water Organizing Module in Earthships

-Earthship Maintenance

-Modular Earthship Drawing Activity

 

Hands-on Training Academy students spend half of their time learning and working on Earthship construction projects. For the sessions that take place in Taos, New Mexico students work on multiple projects at the Greater World Earthship Community and in the Taos area. Classes on Job Site Safety, Power Tools Use and Safety, Earthship Layout and Earthship Terminology help students navigate the construction site confidently and effectively. Hands-on classes are taught with the assumption of no prior knowledge. The skills gained during the hands-on portion of the Academy sessions is invaluable.
