Meet Miguel Vega.  Miguel is a Linn-Mar student, currently in his first year at BIG.  He’s passionate about science and has been working on a sustainability project with local supplier Eco Care.

“I saw BIG as something different, rather than sitting in a classroom day-to-day. I did well in all my classes. But with BIG, I saw that I could get out into the community and experience real life things to apply to my future. I’m passionate about environmental science, and BIG has let me explore that. I’ve been working Eco Care Supply, and I’ve been able to learn about how compostable products will impact our future and how we live in Iowa.”
