We will accomplish this project by hanging up signs near the water fountains in our school. It will make people become aware of the harmful affects and remind them to use a reusable bottle.

My project will collect rain water and I will accomplish this by placing a rain barrel in my backyard to collect it. My mom will use this to water her plants instead of using the tap water. This will be more cost efficient for her and it is reusing our resources.

For our project we will clean the trash that has accumulated around the pond at Hill Country Bible Church after the flooding during Hurricane Harvey

We intend to educated people in our neighborhood about the importance of water conservation. We will spread the awareness through various posters that include statistics that will open the eyes of members of our community.

We will remove invasive tamarisk and Russian Olive trees, pick up and remove trash, plant desirable native plants, and monitor the effects of our work on the ecosystem.

This project will bring marine education to a community of K-5 low-income students, through 2D animation and 3D printing. WonderKids, through the University of Southern California (USC), is a program established to bring Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) related lessons to a total of 100 students per semester in the local elementary schools, taught by undergraduate and graduate students. WonderKids will therefore bring the project curriculum into the classrooms. Ultimately this project will be a compilation of lesson plans and documentation of the classrooms on a website, to be accessed by the students as well as provide the teachers with a step by step process for creating the digital arts projects. This project stems from research on gray whales conducted by Carrie Newell as well as a minor thesis, therefore beyond making the website publicly accessible, we hope to share the project with involved networks to increase visibility and impact. The website will be posted on Carrie Newell’s whale watching website, USC’s Joint Educational Project (JEP), working with 75 classrooms, will also have access to the curriculum for future purposes and the project will be shared with the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA), expanding the impact to 750 educators around the country and to the students those teachers impact.

With a $200 Roots and Shoots mini-grant, we will send 5 girls (age minimum is 13, so only a few of our members qualify) to a Job Shadowing class at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. The choices include Veterinary Medicine, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, and others. This unique program is consistent with the goals of both Roots and Shoots, in its environmental impact, as well as our group, MESSAGE, in advocating the importance of STEM fields for females.

Our project will connect each member of the community together in hopes of cleaning and clearing out trash and anything that pollutes the community.

Our group will be working with one tank of oysters that we placed in a Brooklyn waterway. We will visit the tank four times during the school year, collecting data on the conditions of the water, health, size and growth of the oysters, as well as taking stock of any additional flora and fauna co-existing with our oyster population. Outside of these four visits, we will be working within our classroom to learn about the oysters themselves; why did the start disappearing from New York; what was their benefit to our community; why are we working so hard to bring them back? In order to properly collect data regarding the oysters, students will be learning about the oysters themselves: how do they live, grow, reproduce, and what do they need to survive. They will also need to become familiar with this specific type of data collection, which means they will be exposed to many tools for measuring water turbidity, weather conditions, specimen sampling and more. As a result, their STEM knowledge will be greatly increased from exposure to real-life science and problem solving!

We will create spaces for native plants, edible plants, and maintain/beautify existing plants and trees. We intend to share these spaces with the community and create an environment in which students, families, and extended families/community members can enjoy the spaces and benefit from what is grown in the Caroldale Community Garden.
