IoT can do more than just simplify the way we work – it can also revolutionize the way we live. From enabling sustainability to inspiring future generations to explore technology, IoT has the potential to make a significant impact on our lives, our world, and our future.

KORE and SageGreenLife have partnered to bring IoT together with sustainability in one local school in the form of a living wall. Representatives from KORE and SageGreenLife will present the wall to the students of the NEW Academy of Science and Arts. By bringing a tangible example of how IoT powers green living, we hope to further cultivate the natural curiosity that children have for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).

About NEW & NEW Academy of Science and Arts

New Economics for Women (NEW) is the founding nonprofit of NEW Academy of Science and Arts (NASA). NEW’s mission to build economic mobility, for women and their families through housing, education, wealth creation, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement. NEW serves as a strategic partner with NASA, with NEW developing the school facilities and educating each student through NEW's Whole Family Transformation model leading to economic mobility. The school’s programming is also embedded and delivered through its affordable housing, primary healthcare, computer teach and supportive service offerings and is designed to empower families and cultivate economic mobility. NEW’s afterschool programs provide NASA students with numerous opportunities and experiences to develop their critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and self-development skills, key capacities that are associated with success in personal and professional life and promote lifelong learning. In addition, NEW and NASA’s parents participate in “Padres Comprometidos” program. This program helps parents to understand the educational system so they can advocate for their child’s success.

NEW Academy of Science and Arts is an independent charter school located within the Belmont-Pico Union community, just west of downtown Los Angeles. Since opening in 2003, New Academy of Science and Arts (NASA) has been providing high-quality public education for students in grades K-5. The mission of the NEW Academy of Science and Arts is to create a child-centered environment where students are able to work cooperatively, become self-directed, think critically, develop self-esteem and self-assurance, and value cultural diversity. NEW Academy of Science and Arts has three specific performance objectives: 1) to promote student progress in academic and artistic achievement, with an emphasis in the arts and sciences; 2) to promote each student's character development and adherence to community ethics and values, with the active participation and contribution of their parents; and 3) to implement the most appropriate curriculum for each child.
