Just placed an order for 12 Butterfly plants that will be planted around our common area where I live. The bare root Butterfly plants arrived and shared with a friend. My 6 plants have now been planted in large pots in my back yard and are doing great. They will be transplanted this fall after the extreme Arizona summer heat.

Not only would students be able to quickly locate their nearest water fountains, but the analysis would show areas where fountains are lacking. My partner and I will map out all of the water fountains in accessible areas of the campus, including most lecture halls and other common areas. We will indicate the number of fountains, whether it is a hydration station or simply a fountain, the floor level of the fountain, and the building name. Using the total number of fountains at a particular point, we will be able to identify the distribution of fountains throughout the campus and areas where fountains are lacking.

I will start next week with collecting plastic bottles in my street. At the end of the month, I will begin the construction of a small boat out of 'waste'. The result will be shared on my Facebook page 'Friday the 13th Challenge'.

The OMEGA system uses natural and artificial bays that are common worldwide and will become more common with sea-level rise. Overall, OMEGA provides food, water, and energy and simultaneously improves the coastal environment by eliminating pollution. It also increases awareness of alternative energy and promotes a sustainable blue-green economy. OMEGA consists of large flexible plastic tubes, called photobioreactors. Floating in seawater, the photobioreactors contain freshwater algae growing on wastewater and concentrated carbon dioxide. These algae are among the fastest growing plants on Earth. If an OMEGA system was used in San Francisco Bay, it would occupy less than 1 percent of the Bay and it would produce at least 2 million gallons of fuel annually or about 20 percent of the diesel San Francisco's fleet of municipal vehicles consume. The water from the algae cultures is not released into the ocean, but further treated with a process developed by NASA for space exploration that makes it clean enough to drink. On the surface, the OMEGA system transforms solar energy into electricity and heat from solar panels and into biofuels from the algae.

New black tubing and drip nozzles will be purchased and connected to the school's existing ground water drip system by student volunteers. Water irrigation will be tied into the school's timed water system with the black tubing and drip nozzles by the school's facility department or volunteers as soon as possible. Next school year, our Roots & Shoots group will help maintain the Monarch Waystation and in the future hopefully be able to tag the Monarch's on their migration.

We are one of several schools in Weld County and the only school in our district that has a well drilled right on our property so that we can test water quality. Our students have learned to take readings for air and water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, nitrates, and depth. These results are posted on the Weld County Well Watch website so that information can be analyzed throughout Weld County.
