PS 146 - Brooklyn New School


At Brooklyn New School, social studies and science are the basis for an inquiry-based curriculum that supports students in becoming changemakers. This approach has led to student-designed innovations such as rainwater catchment system, a school-wide composting program that attracted the attention of other Brooklyn schools and the Bloomberg administration, and a wigwam built in Prospect Park. As sustainability is a core value of the school, Brooklyn New School hosts an “Ecorama” at the end of the school year in which students present their science and social studies-based sustainability projects to the greater school community.
