To be successful in the world and the work place students must have 21st century skills. These skills include communication, collaborations, creativity, and critical thinking. Project based learning is an engaging way for students to achieve these skills. Students will research real world problems based on their Georgia Standards, then create a solution for those problems. Students will also be able to access recyclables and consumables to create prototypes of projects that will solve real world problems.

Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.
