How do we equip the current generation with the sustainability skills they need to address the 'grand challenges' such as climate change? We think hands-on, design-centered challenges are the key - and that's why we got a used dumpster. From design to implementation, students will use innovative math and science curricula to help Professor Dumpster transform the barely habitable garbage container into a sustainable house and interactive teaching lab. Professor Dumpster will need all the help he can get because he's about to make the dumpster his new home address!
