Greenhouse Teen FlashBuild: Food
April 22, 2018 · 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
FlashBuild is a new signature NYC-based 8-hour experience designed specifically for teens looking to engage in an “escape the room – type” challenge that is both fun and social while also thought-provoking and focused on a theme relevant to our times.
The theme of this FlashBuild is FOOD. Together, the group will determine which food-related social issue they most want to tackle given the finite resources provided and a strict time limit. (And they’ll do some eating along the way…)
This session will be co-run by Chefs Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz, Founders of The Gefilteria. Teens will earn 6 hours of community service.Info here
