I will be creating an educational powerpoint about the ways of saving water and what you can do at home to be more cautious to not waste it. For this project, I am working with The Water Project organization to sell wristbands during a period of time that acknowledges the people who wear it are participants in this project and support saving water. The funds that I will raise after will then go to The Water Project to be distributed across Africa for a supply of fresh water.
Research on microplastics in ocean and fresh waters, beach sand. Research impact of ocean plastics on marine organisms. Impact of breakdown of plastics into polymers that are human endocrine disruptors, especially youth and pregnant women. Development of a bi-lingual education and action campaign for the broader population. Brochures, Public Service announcements, tabling at Earth Days, parent meetings, health fairs. Students will collaborate with other teams nationally and internationally. Also with Algalita, 5 Gyres, Last Plastic Straw.
I will try to show you "tricks" and ways to save water. Easy to do, it's only force of habit.. Intentaré enseñaros "trucos" y formas de ahorrar agua. Fáciles de hacer, es sólo cuestión de costumbre.
our wish is to help poor people by giving them food and water.
Collect needed supplies and send out to the water protectors at Standing Rock.
This project will allow my students to engage with data to understand weather phenomena. In understanding weather, my students will have a greater understanding of seasonal changes, climate zones, and climate change.
Students collaborated and researched the types of fruits and vegetables that they could potentially grow at a school site with limited access to water, but that will be provide the necessary nutrition that will sustain them...at least until lunch time. They looked at types of window boxes and amount of sun needed, etc., on a limited budget as well. Once we had that information and shared in around our conference table, the real work began. So far, students have planted strawberries, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, cucumber, and kale. They even have a lime tree, and a grape vine! The next step is to care for the plants until harvest, all the while looking for recipes that students can easily prepare. The ultimate goal is to create food oases around our campus that provide healthy snacks for our school community! Meanwhile, we have to identify and (possibly) design a way to collect water so that our oases remain sustainable. We're looking for ways to collect rainwater and to bring water to our gardens that will follow our school's and school district's guidelines, so that this project will prove to be a beneficial one to the entire student population.
Our project will bring hydration stations into our high school. We will be fundraising through various ways in order to raise the money.
School eco warriors to present project to whole school through their child led assembly ,including power point and posters. Used milk bottles to be collected and rinsed for redistribution. Children to return bottles hopefully containing donations, coins expected, also the bottles are to be decorated. A prize for each key stage to be given for best decorated bottle.
We will be partnering with the Mid America Science Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate. Our project will include a winter clothes drive - those taking part will be asked to donate winter clothes or they can choose a hat, coat, gloves, or they can choose any piece of warm clothing they need. The STEM/ winter themed event will include activities such as: making hot ice, projects with liquid nitrogen, dry ice and a pine cone/water microscope table.
