We plan to educate our community about why dog waste can be so harmful, and provide them with resources to make the process easier. We think that by reaching out to a local official and convincing them to spend time and resources on this issue, we can make the maximum impact. We have been researching the negative effects of dog waste, the occurrence of uncleaned up dog waste in our community, and how people can do this more effectively.

Students from our Earth and Recycling committees in our Arroyo IB Student Ambassador group will work with Curiosity Quest's Joel Greene http://www.curiosityquest.org/ to educate themselves about how to water audit a front yard. They will then take this knowledge and apply to an actual home. They will work together to adjust water timers, add mulch to planter areas, and change out leaky or wasteful sprinkler heads. All their work will be a part of a new PBS program called "Curiosity Quest Problem Solvers." This has the potential to impact millions of viewers!

Mountaintop removal is a radical form of coal mining in which entire mountains are literally blown up -- and it is happening here in America on a scale that is almost unimaginable. But mountaintop removal can be stopped -- with the help of people like you. Sign the pledge here: http://ilovemountains.org/act/ The Clean Water Protection Act is a bill in the US House of Representatives which will sharply reduce mountaintop removal coal mining by protecting our headwater streams, where our rivers, like the Mississippi and the Ohio, are born. Over 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried and polluted. But we can stop this. Contact your Representative today and ask them to become a cosponsor of the Clean Water Protection Act.

I will only have one day in the classroom with these students so we will need to work quickly! My idea is to use the melody of a popular song that everyone knows and change the lyrics - I will have some recording equipment with me so by the end of my time with them we should be able to make some recordings. Then I will complete the song and send it back to the class so they can share it with their community!
