    Tour the award-winning SFCC School of Trades, Technology, Sustainability & Professional Studies at Santa Fe Community College which offer a broad curriculum that includes degrees and certificates degrees in building science, construction technologies, drafting and engineering technologies, greenhouse management and sustainable technologies which include algae, biofuels, micro grid/ energy storage,solar, water treatment and water catchment. This Green Building Council certified LEED® Platinum building showcases many of the next generation building technologies and houses all the sustainability classes offered by the community college. The tour of this 42,000 square foot building includes the rainwater catchment where rainwater is used exclusively for lavatory use, viewing the rooftop water collectors and waste water/gray water recycling where water is used solely for irrigation use, and the brand-new ultra-low water use greenhouse growing complex.


    The tour concludes with the unbelievable demonstration of the Science On a Sphere® (SOS) system. This is a room sized, global display system that uses computers and video projectors to display planetary data onto a six foot diameter sphere, analogous to a giant animated globe. Researchers at NOAA developed Science On a Sphere® as an educational tool to help illustrate Earth System science to people of all ages. Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown on the sphere, which is used to explain what are sometimes complex environmental processes, in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating.


    Transportation from the Convention Center to SFCC is provided courtesy of the SFCC Foundation. The tour lasts approximately 4 hours and departs from the Santa Fe Convention Center at 11:00am on Friday, June 14th.
