 1st. Place:    Mario Grab    Beat von Atzigen  

The school building will be improved with a geothermal heating system, a rainwater tank, a new solar system roof and new insulation. The building will be completely self-sustainable on energy and even sell the surplus. All the investments will be amortized after some years.

2nd. Place:   Adrian Manser   Kim Guizzo   Dany Bösch  

Our idea is to upgrade the schools' walls with better insulation from the in- and outside. Heat loss through the walls will be much lower after the upgrade such that the school can save money on heating and air conditioning.

3rd. Place:   Remo With   Raphael Müller  

Our idea is to replace the old Mensa with a new one. The new Mensa will be completely lit by LEDs. The students will help with designing the. This project will be advertised at the inaugural festival.
