For kids summer is generally time for sleeping in, riding bikes and swimming, but not for the sixth graders in the Go Green Institute at Binghamton University. About 50 students from the Binghamton City School District are participating in the seventh-annual summer science program.
The program is an intensive 10-day, hands-on learning experience centered on the theme of a greener living environment.
The students participate in experiments in the lab, take field trips and learn about creating a sustainable living environment.
Go Green is led by Wayne Jones, professor of chemistry at Binghamton University.
“Fur the U.S. to be competitive in science and technology globally, it is critical that we grow the pipeline of young students interested in careers in science and engineering.”
