Students, teachers, New York Power Authority (NYPA) and NY Sun Works staff, local elected officials and DOE representatives gear up for an exciting ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of The Highbridge Green School’s hydroponic greenhouse classroom. NY Sun Works has opened almost 40 new hydroponic science labs this year, bringing their total to 139 Greenhouse Classrooms across New York City.

NY Sun Works is a non-profit organization that builds innovative science labs in urban schools. Through our Greenhouse Project Initiative, we use hydroponic farming technology to educate students and teachers about the science of sustainability. We envision a generation of environmental innovators, empowered to create solutions to global resource challenges.

The Highbridge Green School is a community school that serves grades 6-8. This beautiful building includes green features such as a rooftop garden, a wind turbine, solar panels, a greenhouse, and a rainwater collection system.

The lab is funded in partnership with NYPA as part of their Environmental Justice STEM program.

We invite you to join us for this special event which will take place on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
