Earlier this month Bronx Design & Construction Academy Energy-Environment Research Club students submitted a research paper about our Green Roof Integrated Photovoltaic Canopy project. As a result, we were invited to compete in the preliminary rounds of the New York City Science and Engineering Fair (NYCSEF) against 550 projects from a select group of high schools. BDCA was then rated in the top 20% of the preliminary rounds and invited to complete in the NYCSEF final round in the Museum of Natural History against the top science research projects in New York City.
In the final round BDCA received a 3rd place category prize and was recognized with two special awards: US Army Excellence in Science & Engineering and The Ricoh Americas Corporation Sustainable Development Award!
