One Petal of the Living Building Challenge is Equity, and included within Equity is accessibility – or rather the ability for all to engage with and enjoy the building regardless of whether they are a student of, or visitor to Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech's Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC), in keeping with the Equity Petal accessibility requirement, creates content about The Kendeda Building for K-12 students across the state of Georgia. These lesson plans and materials are free of charge to any teacher and accessible through the internet. Additionally, the building's YouTube channel and 3D virtual tour allow for anyone to “visit” the building from afar.
Our goal is to one day have content for all grades from kindergarten through 12 so each will have a one-week long science lesson plan that directly connects grade level curriculum to The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.
