Ninth graders at Environmental Charter High School in Lawndale, Calif. are engaged in a month-long learning experience that challenges them to “Design the Community of the Future.” Students are competing against each other to win a hypothetical contract from a local City Council to rebuild a plot of land and create a new community. Each design must reflect the theme “What is quality of life?” and incorporate environmentally friendly, cost-efficient and energy-saving features.
Students will present their designs to a panel of teachers and outside professionals, including several members of the U.S. Green Building Council – Los Angeles Chapter, in hopes of winning one of three prizes for the best designs, including the most environmentally friendly building.
You’ll be impressed and inspired. We promise.
We invite you to come see how these youngsters envision the improved neighborhoods of their future, and hear how their designs will benefit the community and enhance quality of life. Their presentations will be among a full slate of day-long activities involving all grade levels at the school’s “Community Forum” happening Friday, Feb. 7.
