Viginia Tech logoIn collaboration with Laboratories for the 21st Century and the Institute for Connecting Science Research to the Classroom, the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech is creating a new Center for High Performance Learning Environments. The Center will serve as a first-of-its-kind resource for designers, engineers, system consultants, teachers, school administrators, facility managers, and others interested in improving the design and operation of K through 16 learning environments. Once established, the Center will take a holistic approach to these teaching laboratories and focus on a range of multidisciplinary activities, including:

  • Energy efficiency,
  • Sustainability,
  • Systems integration,
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) certification, and
  • Integrating appropriate technology into a classroom of the 21st century.
  • In addition, the Center seeks to establish strong relationships between the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech and industrial partners, as well as architecture and engineering firms specializing in the design of learning environments.

This informal breakfast meeting explored the new Center, and invited attendeed to help shape its creation.
