EAST (Environmental And Spatial Technology) will be holding their open house at the same time for you to learn more about the good work they do in this community. EAST is a nonprofit organization that provides new service projects using the latest in technology. EAST was piloted at Greenbrier High School in the 1995/1996 school year. Since then, it has expanded wildly and sparked national recognition. There are now hundreds of EAST classrooms in over 200 schools in eight states, which include Arkansas, California, Iowa, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
