INSIDE BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY
Two projects funded by Ross University and Community Projects Fund
The first, between Binghamton University’s Environmental Studies Program and the Binghamton City School District, will be funded for $6,200. The partner-ship will provide 7th grade students hands-on experiences in the University’s Nature Preserve and will allow Environmental Studies students to gain experience in environmental education.
The second, funded at $3,800, is a partnership between the School of Education and Human Development and the Junior League of Binghamton to develop a literary-based children’s inter-active garden at the Discovery Center in Binghamton. The Story Garden, reflecting themes of exemplary children’s stories through 12 vignettes, will promote literacy, be available for elementary school field trips related to literature and science and will allow Binghamton Uni-versity students to pursue field experience, including research, observations and interactive oppor-tunities with young children.
