ELAC USGBC Club’s event for GADoS took place at Robert Hill Lane Elementary School, located on minutes away from East Los Angeles College. The audience was Mr. Aguilar’s 4th and 5th grade class, and the workshop was led by members of ELAC USGBC Club that had volunteered to participate.
The event was kicked off with an presentation on the fundamentals of sustainability, recycling, renewable resources, alternative energy, water conservation, and native plants. As was expected, Mr. Aguilar’s bright students had an impressive knowledge of some of those basic principles, further supplemented by the presentation. To put their knowledge to the test there was a fun round of trivia and a chance to win some prizes.
