Description

Sustainable Schools teams faculty and graduate-student researchers from ASUs Global Institute of Sustainability and its new School of Sustainability with high-school teachers, students, and administrators in a project designed to address the challenge of becoming a sustainable school. Fellows, guided by faculty members, help teachers and students use scientific methods and interdisciplinary-inquiry tools to collect data on school-sustainability indicators on food, energy, water, waste, landscaping, and quality of life. Students will collect, analyze, and graphically represent scientific data and then communicate their findings and solutions at community forums and science fairs. The themesustainability sciencecombines biogeophysical and socioeconomic sciences with engineering to solve complex, real-world problems.
