The Environmentally Friendly Guldberg School
When we had the opportunity to visit the school, we saw it had some amazing facilities. There was a smartboard and climate control panel in every room, so that students could see how much water and energy they were using. Additionally, the rooms had motion and light sensors so that lights could turn off when there were no more people in the room and would dim if there was a lot of natural light coming in from the windows.
Students also had climate curriculum. The 6th graders received Lego sets that included solar panels, wind turbine blades, and hand generators to create their own environmentally friendly machines. Meanwhile, the 8th graders had a whole biology lab stocked with great materials to learn about alternative energies.
