Tech Center for Sustainability
The most important initiative in the 20-year history of The Tech
The Tech Center for Sustainability will engage millions of young people around the world to problem solve for the environment.
The R&D base for the Center is an 8,000-square-foot living laboratory and gallery, where we are developing novel interactive STEM experiences that use the power of technology to tackle Earth’s greatest challenges. The Tech Interactive’s 450,000 annual visitors will experiment with these activities and help us explore their scalability so that the best experiences can be delivered globally.
Through the Center, we will provoke young people worldwide to take action in their communities and with their own life choices.
