Our Arroyo IB Ambassadors plan and run stations designed to showcase the beauty of our planet, how humans impact the Earth when using resources, and how we can all take actions big and small to made a positive difference. Students look at flowers up close under microscopes; students learn about the recycle numbers on plastic containers; students sort trash for: recycling, compost, and landfill; students plant a seed to take home; students make statements of action to share with the community.

I have been collecting recyclable bottles from classrooms in school. Not everyone uses reusable bottles. That should be my next PSA! Each bottle yields 5 cents which I accrue to donate to CoolEarth, a foundation that saves rainforest acreage. I have saved 2.5 acres so far.

We will continue to live as sustainably as we possibly can, which for us means that if we take something from the Earth, like organic fruits or vegetables that we grow, we return something, like vermicompost. If we want to observe the life cycles of monarch and other butterflies, we plant hosts to attract them and place them in our mariposario where they can live in a safe environment. If we want to give thanks for all that our community provides, we offer art, our ears and hearts, a chance to reuse clothes and educational toys and games, education, and our voices to support that community.

Students will maintain our school's newly installed edible garden by working as a team. In addition, students will provide information about the benefits of composting and how to create an edible garden. The information will be shared with our school staff and parents.

My project will include/begin with my Roots and Shoots group advertising for people at my high-school to bring in their old electronics which will be collected in collection boxes throughout the school and in our student center bringing awareness to our cause amongst the community to then have the items be recycled.

Our students will create and present engaging lessons for younger kids that teach them about environmental topics. We will have 10-15 booths run by student groups of 6-10 students each. Each booth will promote or educate a different topic that will educate kids about environmental topics. Example of past topics are listed below. Our students (grades 9-12) research each of these topics, develop a short lesson, create informational sheets and posters, create a script and talking points, gather materials, and practice. A small committee of our Green Team club advertises to the Arcadia community and all the schools by making flyers, posting announcements in bulletins, reaching out to all of our districts schools, and posting to social media including facebook, twitter, and instagram. This committee designs and prints the passport to be used by all of the volunteer groups and organizes the other campus clubs (Sierra, Campus Environmentalists, Red Cross, Affinity for Animals, and Kare4Kids) in 3 preparation and planning meetings before the LAEEF event. Examples of booth topics: IPM Ladybugs, Preying Mantis, mosquito fish oh my Aquatic Animals and ecosystems (fish, snails, elodea, newts, tadpoles) Native and Endangered animals - Desert Tortoise, Big Horn Sheep, Rosy Boa, Birds? Natural Disasters (Climate Change increasing flood/hurricanes/etc) Diseases and Environmental Justice (Disease prevention in developing world) Wind Eneregy (Make pinwheels) Decomposition (Worm Composting) - Kare4Kids Club Seed Bombs (Native plants that attract pollinators) Watter Bottle Hydroponics (No room - No problem! Grow veggies indoors) Current and Alternative Energies (Power for the future!) -Campus Environmentalists Not Everything that looks like trash goes in the trash! (Sorting your trash) Campus Environmental Tragedy of the commons - Goldfish Activity

My goal for this project is to set up collection boxes within the community so people can easily drop off their old electronics. I have handed out flyers to let people know where they can drop their electronics off, and many flyers will remain in the town's garden center, so people can pick them up as they choose.

Sprouts aims to achieve its mission through a once-a-week after-school program. During Sprouts club hours, students will learn sustainability through the creation of a permaculture edible garden and the practice of the 3 R's (Reducing, Re-using and Recycling) in and around the school premises with partners like Terracycle.
