Bringing Hydroponic Science Labs Into Public School Classrooms
New York Sun Works brings hydroponic farming technology into New York City public schools to teach science and sustainability education from kindergarten to 12th grade. The combination of cutting-edge technology with a year-round, grade-specific science curriculum allows our program to become part of the school's daily instruction, not only covering mandated science standards but also harvesting hundreds of pounds of fresh vegetables for the community. Through our hydroponic science labs, students learn about food production and nutrition, water resource management, pollution, biodiversity, sustainable development, among many other topics. Our hands-on and project-based approach to learning is engaging, inclusive, and can be adapted to all types of learners.
