Green Education Foundation

Partnership Development

Due to Straughn Trout’s national recognition in sustainable design, the Green Education Foundation requested our recommendation of a client and project to pilot their Green Building Course curriculum. PSC’s Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School accepted this phenomenal opportunity for the Fall of 2011. The program offers a web-integrated STEM curriculum connecting USGBC-based audit projects with classroom instruction.

STA worked with the faculty and GEF to prepare teaching units that are directly related to the new building’s design. GEF provided free curricula materials and textbooks for the course and the school was also eligible for additional grants and prizes.
