EcoRise

EcoRise kids(Community Matters) I spent nearly 90 mins with Gina LaMotte, EcoRise’s founder & CEO yesterday. I’d only scheduled 60. Had figured I’d spend 45. More than impressed. We’re talking a potential leap in pedagogy by introducing design thinking to kids at a perfect age, and in a way that fosters critical thinking skills – while offering high school teachers excellent practicums to complement even TAKS- & STAAR-driven lesson plans.

EcoRiseThis is an important & cool, relatively new nonprofit. Many thanks to Philip Berber for bringing them to my attention as well as for his seed funding. Ditto to MFI Foundation and Will Meredith for their early funding & for Will’s leadership as an early board member and now advisor. They are also putting together a very cool summer camp.
