GreenFab: Sustainable Design Through Engineering and Technology
Forty-five low-income, minority high school youth (some with disabilities) from the South Bronx learn the skills needed in the sustainable technologies industry.
GreenFab: Sustainable Design Through Engineering and Technology is an academic enrichment program designed to teach STEM concepts through hands-on, project-based learning activities that emphasize career development in the emerging field of sustainable technologies. Offered in partnership with Vision Education & Media (VEM), Sustainable South Bronx (SSBx) and New York University’s Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP), GreenFab provides its participants with classroom instruction in mechanical and electrical engineering, 3D modeling, computer programming, sustainable design practice, and community advocacy. Throughout the course of the program, students develop new attitudes towards learning, reinforce classroom Math and Science skills, and explore career opportunities in STEM and IT- related fields.
