The Green Design Lab™ curriculum is divided into 5 units that focus on Energy, Air, Water, Food and Materials. Each unit is 10 lessons long and comes in a k-5 and 6-9 version. CleanTech, Solar One’s 10-12 grade curriculum, expands on the core concepts of the existing Green Design Lab™ curriculum with more advanced and technical content.
