My project will clean up our local beach and I will work with my school to offer service learning to students who want to participate in this event.

We will be raising trout in classrooms all over NYC in order to release them into the watershed streams. We will also work to restore and protect the riparian area around the streams.

We will place thoughtfully-paired, drought-tolerant plants in the empty garden beds. We want to build a community compost center where we can create nutrient rich soil for our plants, and a student-designed irrigation system to use water responsibly even when we are on break. Eventually, we want to build some more benches and gates for our garden, and replace the broken fence.

Our project will fund our amphibious robot. We will purchase tools and equipment to build our robot and will use the robot to collect water and soil samples.

We are harvesting red mangrove seedlings that have fallen into South Florida waterways and are planting them in seed trays. After 9 - 12 months, we will transplant them into their native habitats. We have contacts throughout South Florida on both coasts that are interested in placing the mangroves in their areas.

Our goal is for our students to be involved in solving a real world problem at our school. We will be doing STEM lessons to guide students through the design engineering process to solve our watering problem. We want to be able to water our gardens using recycled water through a pipeline system from our rain barrel. We are trying to maximize the amount of water collected from a rainfall as well as deliver the water to the gardens automatically.

We hope that by building bioswales in our school garden, we will be able to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that goes into the sewers. This will help reduce combined sewer overflows, which pollutes the Gowanus Canal. We hope that our project will be one part of the Gowanus Canal clean up. We will build our bioswales around the sewers in our school's garden. We will divert water away from the sewer and use it to grow plants.

Our wish is to come up with a proactive way to reduce water usage and maintain a healthy school garden while incorporating technology.

The third grade teachers (we have 10) will ask for parent volunteers to help us create an outdoor stream that we will create to teach and model how erosion happens. We have an outdoor science learning area that we will use to create our stream. Students will see how soil erodes when the proper ground cover is not in place and we will discuss how we can create solutions to erosion problems around our school and in our community. When the students see the erosion happening, they will get a true understanding of the importance of erosion control.

We have already sectioned off a part of the school for the garden, there is a back area of the school that has a narrow yet very long space which to this date has been unused which is where we plan to build the garden. The length of the area is approximately 94 meters long and the width spans from 4-10 meters wide depending on where you are in the garden, with an area size measuring 5,544 feet. In this space we are going to put soil where we will grow a variety of types of plants, we will have a compost station, an aquaponics pond, and we will have an outdoor classroom area. We have an action plan of how we want to partition the space and how we will execute this. Classes will be brought in to learn about gardening while the O-life club will be the primary people maintaining the garden, although anyone who wants to help may do so for credit and/or volunteer hours.
