Creative Learning Systems is piloting the Alternative Energy SmartLab in a full-year program with introductory and advanced courses in Whitmore Lake High School in Whitmore Lake, Mich. Opened in 2007, Whitmore Lake High School’s innovative, environmentally friendly design features a geothermal heat pump system engineered with 47 miles of underground tubing. Whitmore Lake High School educators and school leaders also understand the importance of preparing students for jobs in a state economy where alternative energy is an increasingly important factor. "To fulfill our vision, it was not enough to build a green building, we needed to be a leader in green education as well," said Tom DeKeyser, the school's principal. The Alternative Energy SmartLab features a project-based, student-centered approach that challenges and engages students of all abilities. Students develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, project planning, and communication. In cooperation with its partner schools across the country, Creative Learning Systems is helping prepare students to compete in a global economy.
