What We Offer
Standards-Aligned Curriculum – We create K–12, STEM-based curriculum that challenges students to investigate local sustainability problems and invent real-world solutions. Through project-based activities, design labs, and campus eco-audits, teachers become equipped with the educational resources needed to catalyze student innovation.
Teacher Professional Development – We empower teachers through year-round face-to-face and online training that is designed to support and inspire. Our flexible resources and real-time support allow educators to realize their academic visions, spur student growth and engagement, and achieve true campus sustainability.
Student Innovation Fund – We propel student-driven sustainability solutions into action through our Student Innovation Fund. After students conduct a campus-wide eco-audit and capture real environmental data, they have an opportunity to apply to our Student Innovation Fund and receive a micro-grant to implement their solution. At the end of the year, we convene these students and community members for Student Showcase events, providing an authentic space for students to share capstone projects with the larger community.
