Metro Schools and Urban Green Labs to launch mobile green labs this spring


From green building to urban agriculture, MNPS students will experience hands-on environmental technology thanks to a two-year, $90,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental and Protection Agency. The first year of the mobile green labs will reach 1,000 students by fall 2017. Urban Green Lab, Nashville’s only nonprofit dedicated to improving health and well-being through sustainability, will launch the lab in MNPS during the spring semester of 2016, providing mobile science and sustainability field trips outfitted with engaging exhibits, activities and interactive green technologies.

The EPA funding will also allow Urban Green Lab to competitively disseminate sub-grants to different classrooms and teachers who would like to dive deeper into sustainability education and projects.
