ESW Hydroponics/Urban Farming Project

Fall 2016
Nicole Kennard
Food, Water

The Hydroponics/Urban Farming Project experiments with different ways to grow produce in urban areas using limited space and water resources. We investigate both soil-based and hydroponic methods of growing in order to find the most efficient, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable way to grow produce in Atlanta. These ideas are then shared with the community of urban farmers in Atlanta in hopes to strengthen the local food movement and to provide more healthy and nutritious food to those in need, especially to the food desert areas of Atlanta.

Excel Collaborative Community Garden

Marnie Williams - Academic Coordinator
Food

The Excel Collaborative Community Garden was an opportunity for Degree-seeking and Certificate-seeking students to come alongside each other to work towards a common goal. Students learned that each person could contribute a specific value to a group, and students were able to demonstrate their strengths outside of a traditional classroom setting. PSP funding was used to purchase a curriculum to utilize to ensure that students learning was focused on the basics of horticulture, personal growing and the impact on sustainability.

Know Your Water Project

Fall 2016
Neha Kumar - Assistant Professor

This project will allow students to be part of a large, crowd-sourced study – at little cost to themselves – to contribute to a knowledge bank of how different communities treat and track their water quality. If you are interested in participating in this study, please let us know. All you will need to do is give us an address - anywhere in the world - where we can mail you the device, find a water source where you can use the device (it will take just a minute or two), and let us interview you for less than 30 minutes about your experience.

Shakespeare in Prison Project

Fall 2016
Sarah Higinbotham - Brittain Fellow

As the world celebrates the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016, Georgia Tech students will travel to a high-security men’s prison outside Atlanta to discuss Shakespeare with incarcerated students. While the United States represents only about 5% of the world's population, we incarcerate 25% of the world's inmates — more than any other country in the world.
