Environmental Qualities of Elementary Classrooms

Dr. Megan Franke PI, This research study examined how the school’s architectural designs, rooted in Richard Neutra and Principal Seed’s vision, have impacted the environmental quality of the school’s classrooms.   Six classrooms were involved where measurements had been recorded using sensors for elements like light, temperature, air quality and surveys are used to get student & teacher inputs.  Students have been very interactive with researchers in asking questions, and the intermediate students in one class had a zoom call with the director of sustainability from Eastman Perkins (study co-sponsor) to talk about the measurements and impacts of the study
