Finding a Home: Thomas Nicolella
My capstone originally started out as a maneuver to receive grant money from organizations in order to help out Science Leadership Academy with sports equipment. As the year went on I quickly realized that equipment was not the real problem. The school district of Philadelphia has actually funded baseball teams this year so they could get three regulation bats and bases (along with a pitching mound). Our real problem was finding a home field. The purpose of my yearlong project was to find a field for the baseball team that was somewhat close, while making equipment more affordable for students on the team.
