STEM Labs Brighten the Future
Nuview Union School District
“Saving on energy costs is important, and seeing solar panels outside our schools is exciting. But we wanted to make solar science come alive in the classroom. OpTerra helped us make this happen.”
- Nearly $7MM in net savings over the life of the program
- OpTerra STEM Lab provides hands-on, real world learning
- Transformed learning environment demonstrates district leadership in the region
Nuview selected OpTerra to modernize its school facilities through a combination of solar, energy efficiency, and campus safety projects. Savings from these efforts funded the district’s vision to build its first STEM Lab. Students share how this hands-on learning environment enhances their exploration of science, technology, engineering, and math inside and outside of the classroom.Learn more.
