High School Students in Greenpoint

GreenTECH

This three-year initiative was funded by the National Science Foundation in partnership with Solar One, MOUSE and the NYU Wallerstein Collaborative.  We worked with four local high schools to engage students in green technologies through innovative green curriculum coupled with green career education.

The NYU Wallerstein Collaborative focused on developing a green career education program which enabled students to connect with individuals in a variety of green careers within industry, government, non-profit, and academic settings.  Specifically,  the green career education component introduced students to a variety of  career options and helped them understand how STEM skills connect  to career pathways.

This component of the project provided a unique array of activities for students to learn about career options by integrating GreenTECH curriculum with career education opportunities. Activities included guest speakers from a variety of green technology sectors, suggested field trips to work sites and green buildings, and a Green Careers Database which provides links to public and private organizations involved in green technology.  

On this webpage you can search our Green Careers Database, find out about GreenTech Field Trips, and high school internship opportunities in a variety of settings.
