The Babcock Neighborhood School (BNS) in Punta Gorda, Florida is located in the country’s first solar-powered town. The school focuses on “greenSTEAM” – an education initiative that teaches science, technology, engineering, arts and math in a holistic learning environment. The program concentrates on local history culture and landscape, encouraging students to interact and explore the world and area around them.
