In September 2021, the B&O team partnered with Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Suffolk County, NY. The team wrote three lesson plans for a target audience of grades 6-8 on the topics Climate Change and Ocean Health, Biofuels, and Renewable Energy and the Ocean, which will include activities or demonstrations. The educators of CCE Suffolk plan to add these lessons to their brochure and present them to local students at schools, libraries, and their own facilities.
In conjunction with this, the team is also altering the blueprints of the Ithaca PowerHouse that CCE Suffolk can build to repurpose as a portable sustainability museum. The PowerHouse is a tiny home on a trailer that will feature exhibits on the lesson plans the team is writing, and will be brought to the presentations the educators at CCE Suffolk give.
