It is a film documentary project that will be divided in chapters. The first one will deal with food and energy inputs and how this energy is processed by the urban ecosystem, nurturing the whole bunch of especies that live and interact in the ecosystem. The project will be produced in July 2017 and we will need a group of collaborators for that matter. Volunteers interested in film making and our environment, please, do not hesitate to contact me.

KYE-YAC will once again team up with FIRST, an organization created by world renowned engineer and scientist, Dean Kaman. FIRST is an acronym for: (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology.) KYE-YAC will support FIRST teams in the World robotic competition by raising funding to help get a regional champion team to Houston to compete against international teams. Our support will allow a local/regional team to learn valuable STEM and life skills. They will also be eligible for over $50 million dollars in scholarships.

My project will give students the chance to prepare foods that they want to eat as well as introducing new foods to them. Each year, I walk with students to the farmers' market. This year, I want to give them a chance to select and buy produce to take back to school so that we can prepare interesting dishes. I am hoping to use a Roots and Shoots grant to purchase items like olive oil, vinegar, spices, pasta, and other food staples that will be used in the food preparation. Also, I plan to purchase a camp stove to prepare pasta, rice, and other basic foods for the kids to use in their dishes. We will prepare the food in our school garden. We have six picnic tables and there are some plants we can use to enhance the dishes like peppers, arugula, mint, anise, and more. Since the garden is thriving the pleasant outdoor setting is conducive to food preparation.

Our project will build a mini farm at our new school, focusing on organic growing techniques. We will incorporate composting from the school cafeteria to recycle waste and add nutrients to our garden. The K - 8 students will participate in and learn from garden activities and food from the gardens will be contributed to our local food bank.

Our project will hopefully get the younger children in the community involved in science and teach them the basics of science. We will do it by having small groups research easy demo's that have a clear relation to science.

I am going to contact the local Alzheimer's organization to see if there is a nearby shelter for people with Alzheimer's to donate Valentine's Cards to. If not, we will give the cards to the elderly nearby. We will create the cards out of recycled paper and use recycled crayons to write on them. We hope to bring some happiness to their faces during this holiday!
