Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the new facilities at the Developmental Research School at Florida Atlantic University will teach our students about emerging technologies and the economic, social, and ethical rewards of sustainable design and construction.
A kiosk in the main office, complete with interactive touch-screen technology, will inform students and visitors about the features incorporated into the facility’s construction. Among these features, we are including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, responsible materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
It is our plan to construct and operate a facility that is highly energy-efficient and in harmony with the natural environment, exhibiting our community-minded values and providing opportunities for experiential teaching.
The goal of the Developmental Research School at Florida Atlantic University is to transform K-12 public education. The school is consistently ranked among the top 1% in the state of Florida. One hundred percent of students graduate from high school and enroll in select universities throughout our nation. As the school moves from excellence to true distinction, a substantial increase in private support from both individuals and organizations will be vital. At the heart of the new facility are the world-class, state-of-the-art, joint-use student and teacher laboratories. These teaching laboratories will prove to be the epicenter of the dynamic intersection between academics and application.
There are a variety of recognition opportunities, and sponsorships for these facilities. A contribution to the Developmental Research School at Florida Atlantic University will create the facilities that our school needs to allow us to impact the future for years to come. As a 501(C)(3), gifts made to the FAU Foundation for The Developmental Research School at Florida Atlantic University are tax-deductible.
