We are delighted to announce that Magenta House has become an official project of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) for the 2023/24 school year. The program is supported by LAUSD and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). Classes are enrolling now for launch in the first quarter of the new year.
“Pando’s Magenta House program is an exciting expansion of LAUSD’s education and awareness offerings,” says Will Meade, LAUSD Senior Sustainability Specialist. “It creates an opportunity to meet a crucial need for the youth of LA to become changemakers and leaders in the pursuit of a more sustainable region.”
Magenta House is a middle-school program that challenges students to invent water and power conservation and efficiency projects for implementation at home, school, and community. Projects are judged in a competition, with winning submissions honored at the Pando Sustainability Awards in April of ‘24 at Caltech.
Want to volunteer your time to help guide the next generation of changemakers? We're looking for mentors to advise student teams on Magenta House project R&D. Let us hear from you if you're interested: Alexi@PandoPopulus.com.
