Basically a megablocks is when you take a few large city blocks in an area and prevent large vehicles like vans or trucks from entering forcing them to go around the perimeter. The speed limit inside the space is also limited to ten mph for any other vehicles. curbside parking is also replaced with underground parking allowing more space for pedestrians and lowering air pollution.
This project will support the communities that utilize the community center and ensure that the community center remains a lively and accessible space to the various individuals in the community that utilize it.

I have the support of Dr. King, Country Trails principle and my third grade teacher Mrs. Robinson. Our club will meet once a month. Anyone in the school can join in if they would like. We will cover all areas of science. We will also do things that will benefit the local community. Examples of this would be an earth day clean up, as well as growing a vegetable garden, and donating the food to a local food pantry.
For this project we plan to educate the students of Canoga Park High School on the importance of recycling by furthering our previously established relationship with the school and current principal. In order to execute this process our program will be sending a handful of representatives to the school which will be delegated duties previously given to the Green-E Club, or Green Environment Club, at Canoga Park High School. Our scholars will be responsible for assisting this club with collecting recyclable materials, sorting said materials, and delivering said materials via provided vehicle transportation to the nearest recycling center to raise funding for the school as well as our program to reinvest back in the community for other projects.
By obtaining umbrellas for our garden, we will create a comfortable classroom space where students can learn about growing their own food, plant life, the environment and giving back to our community.
We planted Emperor Tulip bulbs, like others have done around the world. Because we live in zone 8, the protocol called for us to refrigerate our bulbs to ensure a proper wintering. We also chose to run an experiment with a second bed of bulb. These we planted November 1st. The other bed we planted January 10 (as the protocol asked for). We created journals to record observations as to when they emerged and when they bloomed. This data we reported to Journey North. It was interesting to find that the earlier planted bulbs (experiment bed) emerged first and bloomed first, but they did not look as healthy as the later planted bulbs. They were a bit twisted and stunted. The wintering of bulbs did make a difference!
Freedom Middle School Get Connected Night! (An evening for the 7th-8th graders to acquaint the incoming 7th graders with FMS.
Our project is helping the people understand the true beauty of what is around them. by setting up a table and helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders out of the school recycling, we are helping inform educated students about the needs of the environment. We also put out a plastic jar for donations to our club to help with next year's projects. By helping with this event, we are educating students about mother nature's requirements and about how we can help. Most of all, by helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders is a way to let them keep a mindful memory and feed the birds of the wild.
