As part of their sustainability focus, administrators committed to educating students about the importance of high performance buildings by incorporating the Trane BTU Crew curriculum into fifth-grade classes at Midland Trail Elementary. The curriculum is an interactive educational program on energy use and conservation in buildings. It teaches students ways to reduce energy use at school and at home to make a positive contribution to the environment today, and it encourages students to consider careers in potential science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) where talent is needed.
