The article presents information on the Green Schoolhouse Series, a program to build and donate sustainable schools with high technology for low-income districts in the U.S. that qualify for Title I funding. The cofounder of the the Series, Jeff Zotara, states that schools should seek to be the intersection between technology, environmentalism, and education. He hopes to encourage science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, promote sustainable schools nation-wide, and increase the relationship between schools and the community in the low-income neighborhoods.
