The Environmental and Spatial Technology (EAST) model is a dynamic, performance-based learning environment for students in grades nine through twelve, utilizing project-based service learning, integrated with advanced technological applications. The setting for this model is an interdisciplinary laboratory environment where the intellectual and problem-solving growth of students, rather than the technology, is the focus.
