Students will learn the importance of utilizing alternative energy sources to generate electricity. First, they will read two books: "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba, and "A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story" by Linda Sue Park. These two stories will transport students to two African nations where water conservation and energy production are essential for survival. Following their reading, students will explore alternative energy sources by creating miniature wind generators and solar cells. Next, students will devise a public program to promote water conservation and the use of alternative energy sources in our community. This program will include the creation and distribution of energy & water awareness stickers to younger students, as well as making and sharing an educational power point about their learning.

I want this project to not only be informative but give the children a real chance to connect with water and understand how it is vital to their community. Being surrounded by water means they daily enjoy a range of water activities including the famous jetty jumping, combining the enjoyment they gain from water I want the project to encourage them to create ways we can improve wastage and understand shortages. An important way to involve the children and keep them interested will be to utilise the time we have to conduct the project through hands on activities and exploring as many aspects of water we can. I want to create a mixture of educating through fun activities such as learning how to make different types of bubbles, growing their own plants, scientific experiments, village related activities and so on. By conducting the classes this way I hope that the children will really understand the importance of water and how we can tackle the water wastage especially.

Our project will engage at least 50 more volunteers in the community work our school does in and around the neighborhood. We will be able to do this by giving the participants the necessary protective wear that they will need for our projects so they do not have to provide it themselves.

Our project is to grow vegetables in an aquaponics system. Goldfish will also grow to help produce the proper amounts of nitrogen to cycle through the system and help sustain the growth of our plants. We will complete water testing for nutrients and pH levels to make sure our plants and fish are happy and healthy.

K-8th grade students will research, design and create educational and entertaining games about the benefits and practice of reducing waste, reusing materials and recycling to keep waste from our landfills. These games will be created completely from recycled materials and will be facilitated by the students. The games will be played by the public at a community event in May 2016.
