We are worried about food waste, and so we are going to pilot a compost program in one of the classrooms in our elementary school. Students will have an outdoor compost bin, but they will also have a smaller bin class to collect things like apple cores, banana peels, etc. Students will learn about the science and beneficial factors behind composting and will observe results such as decrease in classroom trash. Students will then work to educate the student body and then hopefully implement a school-wide composting policy.

Our project will help preserve nature and contribute to the continuation of clean drinking water for NYC. We raise the trout in our classroom and we dig in the dirt to plant the trees.

My idea is that there is this tiny weight at the end of the string that the store puts on so if it gets untangled the balloon won't fly away because it has a weight. The weights could be shaped like the animals that live in Washington, D.C.; for example, a fish, a turtle, an eagle and a deer. So there can be thousands of animals and for every store they can have their special animal, like DC United can have Talon.

The group is working on the planters and other gardening efforts and planning several seminars and mini projects to highlight the importance of being environmentally conscious.

We will clean up the creek and the path next to it. I will make flyers to send out to my community to invite people to help beautify the creek.

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.
