About Us

NY Sun Works is a non-profit organization that builds innovative science labs in urban schools. Through our Greenhouse Project Initiative we use hydroponic farming technology to educate students and teachers about the science of sustainability.

We are dedicated to bringing high-quality education to where it’s most needed and envision a generation of environmental innovators, empowered to create solutions to global climate challenges.

NY Sun Works is an EPA, NAAEE and HBSCNY award-winning organization, and maintains a platinum rated status on Guidestar and a Top Rated status on Great Non Profits.

Populations We Serve 

NY Sun Works serves a diverse population of students primarily across the five boroughs of New York City, with a small but growing number of schools in the greater metropolitan area. We strive to make our program accessible to all types of learners, especially to students who are at-risk, require special accommodations, or are currently underrepresented in STEM fields.

“The amount of creativity I could have in the greenhouse while still learning about science, sustainability in particular, built my passion for biology and physics and showed me the number of opportunities and experiences I could have in the future as a Latina woman in STEM”
