Scripps Ranch High dedicates new green facility

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Scripps Ranch High School is going green with the opening of its new sustainable technologies facility.

The new facility was designed to teach students about the benefits of renewable technology. To that end, the building was constructed using the most renewable materials possible.

"In the other room, we actually have blue jeans as insulation, talking about renewable material. In here you can see there's LED lighting," explained engineering teacher Mena Abdo. "Next door we have CSL lighting. So each building is highlighting some kind of green technology."
