Teachers! Check Out the New Green Design Lab Website

gdl_blogThe Solar One Education team is excited to launch our new, enhanced website, thegreendesignlab.org!

The new website is easy to navigate and offers new features for registering for our Professional Development Workshops, the Green Design Lab Energy Challenge, and a host of resources for our Sustainable Schools Network members!

Since its inception 6 years ago, the Green Design Lab has grown to reach teachers and students in over 400 schools. During this time, Solar One Educators have provided professional development training for teachers on our hands-on curriculum, in-class programming for students, and support for energy reduction and school sustainability projects. With the development and growth of the Green Design Lab Sustainable Schools Network (SSN), Solar One Educators have reached teachers across the United States.

As we continue to grow and develop the Green Design Lab program, the new website will serve as a hub for teachers seeking to bring sustainability and STEM into the classroom. Members of the Sustainable Schools Network (SSN) will continue to have access to existing and enhanced resources including: K-12 Green Design Lab curriculum, online video tutorials, standards alignment documents, educational videos, and much more!

With the new site, you can easily register for upcoming professional development training workshops, sign up for the GDL Energy Challenge, and join the SSN. We would also be happy to discuss bringing a Solar One Educator to your school. Solar One is dedicated to providing schools with the resources they need to bring sustainability and environmental awareness to their schools and communities.

Please visit our new website to learn more! thegreendesignlab.org
