Students at universities across MetroLab’s network submitted civic research projects for the chance to win $1000 and be recognized with the ‘Innovation of the Month’ award.
We selected 12 finalist teams who will now compete head-to-head in a live pitch competition. This session will see the following projects presented, all focused on the environment:
– Leila Heidari (Boston University): Community Engagement to Explore Heat Exposure for Urban-Dwelling Older Adults in Boston
– Lydia Anshus (University of Minnesota): Lincoln International High School Aquaponics Project
– Catherine Bruns (University of Minnesota): Pioneer Park Master Plan: Best Practices for Community Engagement
