The Building Learners program engages students in mapping the sustainability performance of their school building using real data, technology tools and support from a local green building professional. If this type of hands-on, STEM-based program sounds like a good fit with your classroom, apply by Nov. 10 to participate in the 2021 Building Learners cohort.

The new cohort implementation option provides extra support, features and benefits to participants.

  • Extra support: Classes that participate in Building Learners attend a live, virtual training together, and have the opportunity to continue connecting throughout the year with members of the cohort, in professional learning communities and class exhibitions with students.
  • Extra features: Cohort participants receive access to premium features in the Arc data platform, such as Arc Essentials and Arc Performance Certificates.
  • Extra benefits: When you apply to participate in the cohort, you also can apply to receive a scholarship to offset the cost of participation.

If you anticipate being in your school building starting in January 2021, consider how this program can help use your school building as a laboratory for learning building science, sustainability, careers and data-driven action. Here’s how:

  1. Learn about the Building Learners program.
  2. Explore or teach one of the free lessons.
  3. Demo the Arc platform to visualize using it with students.
  4. Understand the resources and support available with the full Building Learners program.

Complete the Building Learners application, including the scholarship portion, by Nov. 10.
