Inquisitive teenagers have a thirst for knowledge about the increasingly important links between our built world and the natural world that sustains us all. As the impacts of climate change increase, students will have an even more intense interest in engaging this issue through localized experience and research. In response, the entire campus is conceived as a “living lab” that models advanced, carbon-neutral living and learning. Automobile use is discouraged; energy and water consumption are radically reduced; the sun and the wind generate power and provide comfort year-round. Students are invited to engage in research into building science, energy efficiency, renewable energy, urban farming, and a host of other areas that equip them to face the challenges of a changing world.
