Learning Lab: Sustainability Education - Development
Urban Green Lab facilitates a range of educational and social programs that inspire participants to make sustainability a bigger part of their lives–in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses. Our Mobile Lab - an innovative interactive traveling classroom - reached nearly 2,500 urban public school students in its first semester. The Lab enables us to reach diverse and underserved populations and to enhance schools science and technology curricula. We expect the program to benefit many thousand low income school children, and by extension, their families, across Davidson County.
