Green Bronx Machine, in partnership with Stepping Stones and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, is building the first ever commercial farm fully staffed and run by foster-care youth. This hydroponic vertical farm, built in a specialized green house in Appalachia, is a completely commercial endeavor and will provide living-wage employment opportunities along with 21 tiny homes for foster-care youth who are aging out of the system. In a community that has no grocery store or access to healthy food, this is a revolutionary workforce development model that will flood the community with healthy, fresh, nutritious food all year long.

Meet 'Project: Sunflower', a #MakerEd project for @MillionSolStars that launched this week at @FairgreenDubai. Students designed a prototype solar tracker for orienting solar panels toward the sun. Super difficult. Super rewarding. More details to follow. #STEM #PBL #Edu
