Program Highlights

Spend July at Kingsborough's (KCC) Urban Farm studying the Science of Nutrition!

First, you'll learn about foundational chemistry topics through the lens of nutrition, specifically about how chemicals, vitamins and minerals effect basic bodily systems. 

Second, you'll use KCC Urban Farm, KCC's on-campus food production site, as a hands-on laboratory.

Third, you'll take what you've learned to create businesses that respond to industry-related problems.

Course Description

Learn about the physical and chemical properties that influence nutritional systems. This course pairs a chemistry course (which uses KCC Urban Farm as a hands-on laboratory!) with a business experience to spark your interest in science.
