DMCA SUSTAINABILITY Labs & Library



During the 2018-2019 school year, DMCA began implementation of a new initiative to enhance student STEM and reading opportunities through state-of-the art environmental lab equipment, literature and customized programming in partnership with Saint Francis University.

New lab equipment includes weather stations, air quality monitors and solar panels at each of DMCA's three campuses. Students collect and analyze the data from these devices.

Each campus has been equipped with a new “library” of sustainability literature, with books that discuss energy and the environment for grades Pre-K-8.
