To be successful in the world and the work place students must have 21st century skills. These skills include communication, collaborations, creativity, and critical thinking. Project based learning is an engaging way for students to achieve these skills. Students will research real world problems based on their Georgia Standards, then create a solution for those problems. Students will also be able to access recyclables and consumables to create prototypes of projects that will solve real world problems.
SEATEAM Goals: 1. To get nets and the desire to remove plastics floating in our ocean into the hands of families who can make a difference. 2. To bridge the gap between environmental giants who are doing big research and hard work to save our waterways and every busy boat-family who appreciates and understands the importance of clear water. How will we do it? We are doing our best to lead by example. We use a variety of nets onboard our boat to remove plastic from the water when we see it - which can be several times a day. Our goal is to buy additional nets so we can give them to youth sailors, boat-families and fellow cruisers to use on the docks, increasing their ability to help our mission. TEAM MEMBERS NEEDED: Noone can solve this problem alone. This is not a marina-management issue, but a social responsibilty. It takes each one of us doing our small part to accomplish a big thing. We CAN reduce plastics in the water and our food source IF we work together.
Help to educate the next generate (which includes me) on the problems with bottled water production.
Our project is an educational forum and expo hosted by students that will educate and unite the community. We will have local and regional businesses and organizations that support sustainability, be present to educate our students on the career opportunities in this growing field and also educate our community on how to live more economically, efficiently, and sustainably.
According to our most recent beach cleanup along the shores of Lake Erie, on Sept. 16, 2017, over 800 plastic straws where collected in just 3 hours! Many of our families attended this cleanup and are well-aware of the plastic straw dilemma. In addition, Kids for Positive Change Educator and Founder, Camille Licate, facilitated individual classroom programs about sharks, sea turtles and marine ecosystems to our 562, 4th and 5th grade students, in early September 2017. During this program, students learned how plastic straws, bags, bottles and balloons negatively impact marine life, and, more importantly, how what happens on the shores of Lake Erie can impact the Atlantic Ocean. Currently, students are working in Think Tank Teams and are researching marine species, the problems they are facing and coming up with plans of action to help the species. Some of our TTT are specifically focused on plastic pollution in our oceans, with a focus on plastic straws. We are implementing a plan of action, developed by one of our Think Tank Teams: This Plan of Action involves creating fact sheets about plastic straws and the negative impacts they have on marine life and visiting every local restaurant to "pitch" the "So Long Straw Campaign." Using raffle tickets, students will explain to restaurant owners and the city council, how patrons who opt out of a plastic straw will receive a raffle ticket. Once a week, there will be a drawing, and a patron can win a free drink, dessert or appetizer. For patrons that prefer a straw, another local organization, LEADERship Ashtabula County, has offered to donate paper straws to all local restaurants. Our "next steps" involve a meeting with the City Manager to put the plan of action in motion. Students will begin to create information sheets and flyers and practice how they will pitch the campaign to restaurant owners. We will have the students call the restaurant owners and set up a time to speak. Then, we will accompany a few students to the meetings. Our goal is to have the campaign in place, with the raffle ticket incentive, by or before January 2018, We will also film the students during the phases of this campaign and create a short video to share with our community and social media. Our goal with this video is to inspire other students to take action in their communities too!
I am introducing a new program in our school to raise awareness of the major environmental issues in the world today. Children will learn about an issue, chosen by them and their teacher/s, and will learn ways to help the earth and reduce the problems caused by humans.
