Central Coast New Tech offers a sustainable context for learning.
Central Coast New Tech High School had overlapping design goals: to meet both New Tech Network and LEED Silver standards in sustainable, high-tech classrooms designed for collaborative learning. Gen7’s high-performance modular design was a dual-focus solution, adding open, energy-efficient learning and lab space tailored to New Tech’s “learn by doing” philosophy. Three oversized 40×40 classrooms support project-based learning, adapting to accommodate interdisciplinary instruction with multiple classroom teachers. Smart lighting and climate controls work with high-efficiency HVAC systems to ensure comfort and save energy—a hands-on approach that teaches students to conserve resources and use technology to resolve real-world challenges.
