What: NY Sun Works has built 130 greenhouse science classrooms in NY and NJ public schools. Their Greenhouse Project Initiative uses hydroponic farming technology to educate students and teachers about the science of sustainability. In the 2019-20 school year, the by-product of these greenhouses was 100,000 lbs of veggies. Studio Usher was asked to do two things:
1. Design a workbook and classroom posters to accompany new curiculum developed to guide students and teachers to make the best use of the fresh, nutritious, and healthy produce.
2. Create a poster to help to fundraise for the program.
Create posters that were highly visual, fun and engaging and work in tandem with more detailed lesson plans online.
