By collecting the extra pens and pencils that we do not use, 200 can fit into a ziplock bag. When anyone is traveling overseas to any part of the world, it's easy to fit the bag into a suitcase and drop them off at a school hospital or orphanage. Even many hotels will help bring it to local towns. It's so simple!! And is such a great need in so many parts of the world. Big companies think of big ideas, and this simple need gets overlooked. We have plenty of extra and can easily help children who need pens and pencils for their education.

R: Our project is about a bycicle that produce electricity using kinetic energy produced by the student. This bycicle will be conected to a battery and a transformer that will make the electrical system works correctly. Since last year, we have been looking for funds and now the school will give as a loan that we will pay doing different activities. Also, we are aiming at the elementary students in order to get their skills for decoration the bycicle. S: Nuestro proyecto está basado en una bicicleta que genera energía eléctrica a través de la energía cinética que realizaría el estudiante. Esta bicicleta estará conectada a una batería y un transformador que ayudarán a que el circuito funcione correcta-mente. Desde el año pasado, hemos buscado alternativas para recaudar el dinero pero el colegio nos ofreció un “crédito” que luego lo deberemos pagar con el tiempo con diferentes actividades. Además, queremos incluir a los mismos alumnos de enseñanza básica a que nos ayuden con la decoración final de nuestras bicicletas en un futuro cercano.

This project will hopefully bring smiles and happiness to the residents of two nursing homes and teach the children about compassion for other people. The children will make Valentine's Day cards on plain white cardstock and add their free hand art work. An inside message will be printed and each child will paste it inside of their handmade card. In addition to the cards, the kindergarten children will make a craft uses recycled cereal boxes by painting multiple random patterns onto the brown side of the box, putting them through a die cutter and making two hearts. The hearts will be turned into one of a kind hanging crafts for each resident. We will make short videos of some of the children expressing what they learned or how the project made them feel.

The RECO club is a student green-club that volunteers to clean up waste from our natural areas as well as greening parts of the city in collaboration with NYC Parks Department by planting trees or working on park clean-up. The club is also affiliated with NYC's Office of Sustainability's Zero Waste Schools. We have a campaign to rescue some trash found within our school to make art projects from it (bracelets out of plastic bags, sculptures out of bottles, etc.) as well as push-in into classrooms to proactively teach other students on how to properly recycle. The RECO Club also takes trips to natural areas or facilities where innovation is taking place so that our urban youth can experience 'nature' or what people are doing around the city to promote sustainability.
