Helping PS 33 Rock Sustainability
On Saturday September 28th, Solar One Educators joined a group of speakers to discuss kick-starting sustainability efforts at one of our partner schools, PS 33 Chelsea Prep. Solar One Educators focused on informing families about the Green Design Lab energy challenge, and the students were able to show off their human powered bike blender that Solar One helped to fund through a partnership with IOBY last school year. The event was part of the USGBC Green Apple Day of Service, which is an annual event where communities around the world work on projects to help make schools more sustainable.
IndyKids Visit Stuy Cove Park
After a wonderful morning with PS 33, Educator Sarah Pidgeon and Gardener Graham Smith gave a tour of the Solar One building and Stuyvesant Cove Park to a group of young journalists from Indy Kids, which is a free newspaper, website and teaching tool that informs children about current news and world events from a progressive perspective and inspires a passion for social justice and learning.
