The holidays came early for Environmental Charter Schools! Southern California Honda Dealers teamed up with Environmental Charter Schools (ECS) to help launch a new sustainable living learning experience for ECHS students as part of our after school Living Under 500 (square feet) program, also dubbed “Tiny Homes.” Through participation in CBS EcoMedia’s EducationAd program, Southern California Honda Dealers provided funding for 3D printers, 3D scanners, tablets and other design technology needed to launch this new experiential learning program.

Funding provided by Southern California Honda Dealers allowed ECS to purchase classroom technology to improve students’ understanding of math and science concepts by presenting a student-centric learning opportunity incorporating art, technology and interdisciplinary creativity. Students will use computer-aided design technology to design and build their “tiny structures” project.

The SoCal Honda Dealers were excited to partner with ECS and provide a Random Act of Helpfulness for our students. The Helpful Honda Team surprised students at Environmental Charter High School by stopping by to unveil the new classroom technology. Students were thrilled to see all of the new high tech pieces of equipment arrive.

The Tiny Homes technology equipment enables ECS to put sustainable living design tools directly into the hands of its students so they can start shaping their communities now. 

“Our students will be the next scientists, engineers and urban designers. Equipping them with real-world tools allows us to develop a sustainability-minded workforce who will go on to become change-makers in their own communities, and who are making important choices to reduce the environmental footprint in their cities now. Southern California Honda Dealers is making all this possible with their donation.”

– Mandy Breuer, Principal, ECHS

A huge thank you to the Southern California Honda Dealers for tools that help us make Science, Technology, Engineering and Math relevant and fun!
