The Brooklyn New School (BNS)

Changemaker School
Brooklyn, NY
United States
Partner Since 2013

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 a rainwater catchment system, a school-wide composting program that attracted the attention of other Brooklyn schools, and a wigwam built in Prospect Park.
