History of Hydrponic Lab
Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams unveiled “Growing Brooklyn’s Future,” an initiative with over $2 million in initial investment from his Fiscal Year 2016 (FY16) to create hydroponic classrooms to a dozen schools across Brooklyn. He made this announcement inside a classroom at the Academy of Urban Planning, a high school located at the Bushwick Campus, which was transformed into a Green Learning Space through a partnership with New York Sun Works, a non-profit organization that builds innovative science labs in urban schools.
"What I love most about AUPE is that we are like one big family. We look out for each other. AUPE staff ensures that kids receive support and succeed no matter the struggles he or she are facing. Parents should send their children here because they would be welcomed with open arms and treated with the upmost respect." -Mylaysha C., Class of 2019

"The thing I love the most about AUPE is the teachers and the different opportunities I get while in school. Parents should send their child to this school because these teachers really care."- Rochellie Diaz, Class of 2020
"AUPE has some of the best staff members ever created. It has been called the best by others who don't even attend."-Tyvoinne Lee Class of 2017
"AUPE offered me the opportunities to explore beyond my usual high school curriculum. I was able to develop the necessary skills needed to help me transition to college and beyond. I could not have done this by myself; it truly took the hard work and dedication of my teachers and mentors to help me become the person I am today. My favorite part of my high school experience was going on neighborhood walks and trips to Newtown Creek for Urban Ecology."-Andrea Basilio City College of New York -2015
