OneNYC High School Competition

OneNYC High School Competition

 

On April 18th, 2016 students from the Brooklyn International High School presented at the Bronx Zoo as part of the 2nd Annual City Wide Visionmaker Fair: High School Competition.

Students from the Brooklyn International High School presented to six other New York City high schools on their findings of how green roofs, constructured wetlands, permeable pavements, rain barrels, and bioswales work to improve water quality as part of the Visionmaker NYC Challenge, Visions for a Strong and Just City: OneNYC.

Students collaborated with CUP to examine these green infrastructures. To investigate, students shared their personal experiences with water, explored green infrastructures along the Gowanus Canal, and interviewed Graeme Daubert of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy to learn more about the history of the city’s water. They created the Soak It Up! set of postcards to teach others how green infrastructures make the city like a sponge.
