Our project will help in planting six trees on a barren street that contains very few plants. Our club is partnered with a non-profit organization called TreePeople who will help our volunteers learn the process of properly planting the trees. Many of our volunteers have the title as a Supervisor Volunteer because they have had experience with planting and caring for numerous trees. Their role is to assist any volunteer that is still unsure of the process or is their first time in planting trees. We will promote our event to our club to receive as many volunteers as we can get. Our club is always ready and happy to help the environment, and our supervisors will help in overseeing the event.
Our project will be to plant trees using compost from Cal State University, Northridge Sustainability Institute. We want to ensure that the trees will have a healthy start in order to survive in harsh conditions.
Getting engaged: We will investigate what is a satellite, which materials are used in order to build one and why are the necessary for Earth sciences. Community mapping: We will interview people in our island and ask them how the felt when they saw the oil spill and how it affected their lives and we will write an article expressing their opinion. We will contact the environmental organization of Salamina (PERIVOS) in order to give us a talk about the environmental impact of the oil spill. Taking action: we will build our own satellites, using LEGO We Do 2.0 , we will write code in order to program to move around our inflated Earth. We will try to find data (pictures from the Copernicus / Sentinel satellites) in order to investigate how large was the oil split. Celebrate: We will present our work during the “Astronerds saving the Earth” classroom party.
The project seeks to get every house in Coleraine a small plant, if all goes to plan I'm going to enlist the help of the council and a few local garden centers! Hopefully we will have enough plants donated to us to complete this task by the end of next month preferably in a smaller amount of time.
I will be planting plants and maybe even a garden.
The app’s components will be quite diverse, including the following: a forum where eco-citizens can exchange information, and an events calendar which provides a user-friendly layout of the newsfeed, an Opportunities for Involvement button, which directs students to internships, summer programs, field trips, club-initiation resources, and workshops, such as TreePeople’s annual Youth Leadership Summit, the choose-from-a-list option containing clearly laid out project ideas, or the Eco Quiz for the less decisive, which guides the participant through questions regarding available funds, space, and administration’s disposition to help find a suitable project, and finally, a Support Resources page with apps and organizations who can lend support for eco-projects. We are very excited to say that we already have our App design company planned out -- they are called Palisadian Apps, and were started in 2016 by a high school student and his former technology teacher!

When we were deciding how we wanted to help our local environment, one of the students (4 years old) said, "We use a lot of paper at school for drawing. I think we should plant a tree since paper comes from trees!" We decided that we would plant a tree on our playground as a way of saying "thank you" to the trees for providing paper and for allowing us to breathe clean air (which is especially important in big cities like NY!) I wanted the students to get experience with fundraising and working toward a goal. The students came up with a plan to have an Ice Cream Fundraiser and luckily for us, it was a beautiful, sunny day! We made over $300! This allowed us to purchase a Cherry Blossom Tree for our playground. Finally, I wanted the students to "get their hands dirty" and help plant the tree. On a rainy, New York day, the students worked hard to dig a hole for our new Cherry Blossom.
We will be hosting a panel discussion at the state capital which will include Dr. Laura Nelson, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Energy Development, Jeff Silverstrini, Mayor of Millcreek, Robert Davies, Physicist at Utah State University, Anna Wilder, BYU Student and President of the Climate Change Club, and Mark Burdge, Senior Executive Consultant for Evergreen CEM. We will also have a virtual statement given by Congresswoman Mia Love, a member of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus.
We will show it in the school library and hold a bake sale outside advertising the movie. Any kids wanting to see it after school could come to the movie and/or support the parks and buy things at the bake sale.
