Cool Green Schools
Cool Green Schools provides training and support to schools and students on environmental, health, and educational topics. Experiment You enables students to test their schools for factors that affect the health and learning of students. Using scientific tools and professional protocols, students are engaged in testing the temperature, humidity, lighting, air quality, acoustics of their classrooms, and the carbon footprint of their school. Then, students are challenged to find ways to improve the school environment along with their own health and learning. Upstream, Downstream engages students in understanding the water and air quality of their school and community. Students use a variety of software, data, and testing to track the path and quality of air and water that flows into and from their school and community. The Greening Your School program engages teachers and students on STEM and environmental projects that can enrich their understanding of the local and regional environments. It is designed to assist schools in gaining and maintaining their green school certifications.
