Our Greenovation Lab – Day 1

ObjectiveStudents in the after-school environmental class will research the sustainable energy systems in place at James K. Polk and create online videos and presentations. Once these presentations are created the students will generate a QR code for each system. Students, staff and visitors for the James K Polk Greenovation Lab will have the opportunity to learn about our solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and our green roof in a fun, interactive way by scanning these codes with an ipad. The QR codes will be placed on the wall alongside each component. In addition, the students will help design the murals, signs, props and interactive models for the Geenovation lab. ACPS funded the mini ipads and other items through the 2012-13 DreamFund, THANK YOU!!!

    Where some see blank walls, I see a space that students are going to make their own, where their learning will be real and valued and where stewardship of the environment becomes a reality!
