Are project is to grow crops on the unused government grassland that could be used as great farming land. We want to take advantage of this land and grow wonderful crops for the schools, homeless, and the kids in need. We will meet at the Boone county jail and the inmates considered as terrible people, could be useful in the community. We will use the land right outside of the jail. The land is an open grassland great for growing crops.

Students will brainstorm ideas and then use the littleBits Invention Cycle to create a product that makes a difference in someone else’s life. Students will use defined constraints and criteria for success to test and then iterate upon their invention to improve its functionality. We will conclude the activity by having students create advertisements to communicate their unique product to potential community members in need.

Students will be empowered to take action and create awareness about the importance of spaying-neutering, why we should adopt and not shop and how to purchase products from companies that do not test on animals. Through a variety of project, students will be inspired to educate themselves and others about the special human-animal bond and how it helps create empathy and compassion. Students are concerned about area felines who they see wandering around, begging for food and do not seem to be adequately cared for. They also care about dogs--specifically beagles whom they heard are used for experiments on products people buy. Students will keep journals-scrapbooks of their experiences. They will read a variety of articles and books--write reflections, work in teams to create powerpoints, build a class website with another fourth grade class that explores the issue of homelessness--animals and people. They will work with the other Roots and Shoots team on creating magazines and fundraising to support local rescues. They will join forces with Pillows for Paws and join in their mission to bring comfort and love to NYC shelter animals. Overall, they will become compassionate and caring problem solvers as they set forth on their mission to help domestic animals in need!!!!

We will reach out to local schools like SDSU and UCSD to bring in a wide audience of people. The screening only works out if we sell the minimum number of tickets, so we will do a lot of marketing for this project! We are also planning on having a beach clean up soon after the screening, so hopefully this will generate interest.

To start we assessed our school to where or what needed the most help. We educated ourselves about the proper ways to recycle and what can be recycled. We looked to see where garbage was collecting and if there were garbage and recycling bins around. We also put up recycling signs that let people know what they could or could not recycle. We put signs around the school that invited people to our All School Clean Up. After school we walked around the playground and cleaned the garbage and sorted them into the correct recyclable categories. We had garbage bags, recycling bin, plastic gloves to help us pick up garbage. We also wrote a grant to try to get a recycling bin on the playground. And eventually we would like to plant a tree on our freshly cleaned playground.

I held two sessions of STEM Training that are required for people who wish to volunteer for all of the STEM programs that are run at the elementary schools in my town. Students are taught how to interact appropriately with elementary-age children and what activities, skills, and games volunteers will teach.

We will place thoughtfully-paired, drought-tolerant plants in the empty garden beds. We want to build a community compost center where we can create nutrient rich soil for our plants, and a student-designed irrigation system to use water responsibly even when we are on break. Eventually, we want to build some more benches and gates for our garden, and replace the broken fence.

I know this won't be easy, so I must educate myself well on the habits of wolves and facts about them. I will have to expose myself to other sanctuaries and facilities (even if I do not agree with how they go about things) to gain insight on what it's like to care for them. Reaching out to zoos and organizations with handfuls of questions about these beautiful creatures is at the top of my list and hopefully by the end of February 2017 I will have all of the information I need on them. The next step is to learn about the laws (such as zoning, taxation (aka filing as a nonprofit), and safety) and researching attorneys I can come in contact with who will help me should anything go wrong. Then I will reach out to veterinarians, even try to meet with some to gain insight on what to do in x-y-z situations. Once I settle on property I will look more seriously in a handful of vets that will aid me. Next is looking at property (once I calculate how much land I need). When I have an idea of the size of land I need, I will need to find land that is somewhat close to a city yet far enough away. I will most likely have to hire a realtor to help me with this as Google searches will make it a lot harder. Finally, I will have to build a large barn. This would be more for housing sick/hurt animals and a place to put an office. I imagine I will need a place to keep files, licenses and a computer while I'm there. This would also double as a storage area for any food/first aid. Obviously the real last step is finding out where to start getting these animals, as zoos would be my first guess yet I'm sure there are hundreds of more places I could get them from. This will probably be the last part of my research as it's less complicated than any other step. I am also going to need money (and lots of it) to start up this project. I imagine myself starting up a GoFundMe page for a lot of it. I have many other plans to gain income as well, however. I hope that by doing this I could save many animals and maybe one day set some free back into the wild. I want it to become normal for them to be roaming around this great big continent!

my project will bring upon changes to the society as a whole .. I will start as an example and reach out to others surrounding me as well as outsiders.. I will start by connecting to the community individually and try to gain mass media and the government support so as to be able to achieve my main objective! my main target is the youth and the women who are going through several hardships in their homes and also their surrounding communities
