Students who attend the Academy have the opportunity not only to study in a super sustainable building, but also learn from the technologies and systems inside. Direct connections to the outdoors are made available with outdoor teaching/learning areas, which provide inspiring views of the nearby Mauna Kea Volcano and the volcanic landscape creeping towards the ocean to the west. Being surrounded by such inspirational landscape as well as the super sustainable teaching facility is sure to provide our next generation with a great education in sustainability, encouraging them to make a difference.

    The design was by the architects but credit for the conceptual design goes to Dr. Bill Wiecking, who runs the Energy Lab and the computer lab. More details about the Energy Lab are http://www.hpa.edu/energylab and http://www.hpa.edu/energylab/about . Watch the video for more about what he envisions it to be and what it teaches. “We shape our buildings and our buildings shape us.” Note also that if you are on Hawai’i you can go on a tour of the lab.
