Brownfield Action 3.0
Brownfield Action 3.0 Partner: Peter Bower- Barnard College
The Brownfield Action simulation is a central component of Professor Peter Bower's Introduction to Environmental Science Course at Barnard College. In this simulation, students are presented with maps, documents, videos, and an extensive network of scientific data to investigate the site of a suspected contaminated land site. They assume the roles of environmental consulting firms contracting with a real estate developer to study the condition of the site and report on the feasibility of commercial construction.
