Supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), GreenFab is a three-year project designed to introduce low-income, minority high-school youth in New York and New Jersey to engineering and technology skill sets used in the sustainable technologies industry.

Located at the Sustainable South Bronx (a community organization dedicated to environmental justice solutions) Fab Lab--an NSF-supported and MIT-designed fabrication laboratory--GreenFab provides students with hands-on experience in digital fabrication, allowing for the prototyping of unique inventions and innovative solutions to community issues. Through the program, students explore how small-scale manufacturing can achieve environmentally innovative solutions to the community's needs.
