CONCURRENT SESSIONS SPECIAL EVENT: PROJECT GRAD LONG ISLAND SUMMER INSTITUTE ENVIRONMENT AND SUBURBAN SUSTAINABILITY Sybil Mimy-Johnson, Executive Director, Project GRAD Long Island and Nigel Hooper, Director, Long Island Film Academy The theme for the interdisciplinary, project-oriented, 3½-week institute was “STEMulating Sustainability.” Students will discuss their summer program from Project Grad. The “STEMulating Sustainability” Summer Institute was an opportunity for our students to explore environmental studies, biology, and film by improving and sustaining the natural resources in our environment. The program included a film component, calling for students to work in small teams to design their own projects that focused on “greener” environments. They researched and produced public service announcements for their final project. With faculty members serving as instructors and mentors to Summer Institute participants, student teams designed their environmental sustainability project over the course of the program. The summer experience culminated in a “green” presentation on the final day of the program. Student representatives: Jordan Guyton, Westbury High School; Jailene Martinez, Hempstead High School
