Kingsborough Community College (KCC) is helping create a more environmentally friendly and sustainable future with this year’s Brooklyn Science Innovation Initiative. The program which challenges students to develop their own sustainable concepts while studying about real world sustainability at KCC’s Urban Farm.
Learning from their five week experience at the KCC Urban Farm, students were able to better understand and explore how their innovative ideas can help impact the way we grow food. By performing hands on activities, KCC students were able to directly test, observe, and explore their unique ideas that help change the way we view food. The summer program helped galvanize projects that involved a combination of recycling, solar power, composting, nutrition, energy conservation, and sanitation from the drawing board to reality. This is already a very promising and exciting step for more students to be involved in STEM research or STEM study to help bring green ideas into our reality!
Gina Argento, Trustee of Kingsborough Community College and President of Broadway Stages, is excited to see Kingsborough students enthusiastic about want to change the way we live by creating solutions to real world environmental issues. Having been a long-time supporter of partners to KCC, working with them to build their STEM lab in addition to the CXM academy, Gina looks forwards to continuing to support KCC and its students in creating a brighter and greener future together. Together with KCC, Broadway Stages cheers KCC students and STEM research for the future!
