2016 Innovative Environmental Education Program Award - Green Star Schools Program

Green Star Schools Program

Aurora Public Schools


In Aurora Public Schools, students, teachers, HVAC teams, and Administrators have completely changed the environmental advocacy conversation by integrating innovative building dashboard technology systems throughout the district in more than 60 buildings. These schools are no longer “brick and mortar” buildings, but living laboratories where students learn about real-time energy use and resource conservation, explore real-world problems such as food waste in the cafeteria, and build upon skills and experiences by earning digital badges through a revolutionary Digital Badging Initiative.

CAEE works to ensure everyone in Colorado has an opportunity to learn about the environment where they live. We value inclusiveness and welcome everyone to the field of environmental education.
