CCSF sustainbility course finds a home at the EcoCenter

The City College of SF spring semester began earlier this month - and one of its courses will be taught at the EcoCenter! In the Applied Research in Sustainability course in the Department of Engineering and Technology, students come to the EcoCenter to help with operations and maintenance of the facility and to develop educational programming. With 14 students enrolled in the course, environmental studies instructor Peggy Lopipero-Langmo provides student with practical work experience as well as exploration in academic research methods and inquiry. By the end of the semester, students hope to have completed group or individual projects that include research on an EcoCenter sustainable design feature and hands-on experience assisting in its operations and maintenance. Welcome CCSF!
