WORC / Worcester Community Project Center


This project focused on working with the Oak Hill Community Development Corporation in order to work with the community to improve the quality of life through a series of recommendations developed with the community that focus on economic and environmental sustainability. To accomplish this, I worked with a group to collect extensive data on energy consumption, behavioral attitudes, and general health within an inner-city elementary school. My group and I led effective meetings to help constantly adapt the focus of this complex project. Based on this data, I collaboratively developed a number of data-driven recommendations that focus on the connection between energy usage, environment, and student performance. The recommendations were organized and presented in a presentation and report.
