Our school projects will be using sustainable materials that will maintain and keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. Our Eco material will be able to withstand most floods, fire, earthquakes depending on the conditions that specific area will faces. It is a simple layout that consists of two floors and solar panels on all the rooftops. The first floor consists of three classrooms, bathrooms, and a reception. A building next to each school will carry the vertical farm/aquaponic system. The second floor includes an R&D room, kitchen, cafeteria and a washing station.
The scale of this can be decreased or increased depending on the size of the school and funding allocated for this component of the project. This one should cover between 175 to 200 children.
