GDL Case Study Featured in Green Schools Catalyst Quarterly
Solar One's Karen Alsen wrote this excellent and comprehensive article about Solar One's Green Design Lab K-12 Education program, explaining the work we do in the schools and how that work is part of the city's OneNYC plan for resiliency, equity and sustainability for the Green Schools Catalyst Quarterly. If youy've ever wanted an in-depth look inside this award-winning program, this is a great place to start.
The article's main focus is the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program offerings. These programs aim to inspire students to explore green careers in environmental engineering, solar development and climate science, while also building environmental and climate literacy as well as an awareness of environmental justice issues in stufdents' own neighborhoods. In the words of one CTE student:
"I would be interested in a career as a solar installer because this industry would help the emnvironment to recover because it is using sunlight. It is a cleaner way to produce power."
Congratulations to Karen and the whole GDL team on a job well done!
