Ga. Tech and Home Depot Join Forces to Educate Community
The Georgia Institute of Technology's Institute Partnerships department and The Home Depot recently joined forces to help Atlanta Public School students learn how to conserve water around their homes. Centennial Place Elementary School fourth and fifth graders learned that by repairing leaky water sources and taking shorter showers, hundreds of gallons of water could be conserved each year.
Georgia Tech's Center for Education Integrating Science, Math and Computing (CEISMC) is also working with The Home Depot to adapt the home retailers' water conservation information into a curriculum for six partnering schools including Centennial Place, Inman Middle, Grady High, Bethune Elementary, Kennedy Middle and Washington High.
