College Now @ Kingsborough Community College

The Brooklyn Science Innovation Initiative

Attention High School Juniors; Are you interested in becoming a science innovator and/or prospective entrepreneur? Join us at Kingsborough Community College to learn about the physical and chemical properties that influence nutritional systems. The Science of Nutrition 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.  Some program highlights are:

  • The Science of Nutrition course, SCI 7000 (4 Credits, 6 Hours) in the morning.
  • In the afternoons, you will work with an instructor on developing a simulated entrepreneurship business workshop experience.
  • These two components will complement each other. The science concepts will give you hands-on experience.
  • And you will work as a team to develop a business product which will be showcased at an end-of-semester event.
