We are meeting with Amir Asor, CEO and founder E2 Young Engineers. E2 Young Engineers enrichment programs adopt a rational edutainment (the combination of education and entertainment) approach. E2 Young Engineers have developed a variety of different programs that can be used to teach the most important subjects. Children joining their educational community can learn and enjoy the likes of arithmetic, physics, and mechanical and software engineering. E2 Young Engineers have developed special programs and workshops suited to children at both ends of the learning spectrum, from gifted children to those with learning disabilities. Unlike traditional teaching methods, our use of stories, experiments and demonstrations ensures that all children joining our enrichment programs will learn while they have fun. In fact, they’ll have so much fun they may not even realize they’re learning.

On November 25, my guest will be Jason Kliwinski, AIA, LEED Fellow, principal at Designs for Life LLC and CEO and Founder of the Green Building Center. Jason is a highly recognized and accredited professional in the field of Sustainable Design. As a practicing Architect with over 20 years of experience, he has been greatly involved in the restoration, preservation, and adaptive reuse/renovation of existing facilities as well as the creation of new environmentally responsible buildings. In 2012 Jason was named a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Fellow by the US Green Building Council, one of only 200 in the country, which is the highest professional accreditation through peer review of an applicant's work by the US Green Building Council. Jason’s approach to architecture and green building is holistic, with a focus on incorporating the principles of green building on-time and within budget. Jason founded his own architectural design firm in 2003 and more recently the Green Building Center in 2010 which focuses on providing owners, developers, property managers, and real estate professionals a convenient ‘one-stop’ location that brings green design, construction, products and education together under one roof using a unique integrative project delivery approach. He has been responsible for the design and construction of dozens of green buildings, many of which have achieved LEED™ certification in various markets, several carbon neutrality master plans for major institutions, and development and implementation of many educational programs focused on greening the built environment.
