Middle school and high school groups will gain a deeper understanding of environmental stewardship through design thinking.
Explore the impact a LEED Platinum building has on the local environment by exploring the inside and outside of our BRIT campus! Gain a deeper understanding of environmental stewardship in this hands-on study. Students examine the role cultural, social, and economic factors play in the development of environmental solutions and how ecosystem biodiversity relates to our Texas Landscape through a guided tour, then put their new knowledge to work in an on-site Engineering Design Challenge.
What is LEED? Short for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design,” LEED is the most widely used green building rating system. The BRIT building is certified at the highest level achievable in their 4-level system.
This program is at capacity through July 2023. Self-Guided Field Trips are still available, or we would love to see you in the Fall!
