A new Music and Science complex was added to the Hood River Middle School in 2010, earning LEED Platinum certification. Through a series of interviews with the school faculty and the design team, we explore the creation of a net-zero-energy building that complements the children's studies of the balance of nature. Course participants will learn how the project integrated several strategies to create learning opportunities for students to achieve the 'School as a Teaching Tool' credit with one of the most robust sustainable curricula in the world.
The school extends its sustainable education to the community, earning the project another innovation credit for 'Green Building Education'.
The intended audience for this video course include design professionals who work on K-12 projects, school teachers and administrators, and anyone interested in how green buildings can be used as teaching tools to increase occupant and community awareness of environmental issues.
