We started by learning about how our vast populations of people have polluted the oceans. In the process we learned about how all life on earth is dependent on our oceans being healthy and in balance. The focus quickly went to the impact of plastics, looking at waste of plastic bags and straws. Through the Students Rebuild project, each "sea creature" we created was result in $2 being donated to protecting and cleaning our oceans. We made hundreds of mostly origami sea creatures, including whales, angel fish, sea anemones, clam shells, and jelly fish.

Our wish for Beach Bucket Brigade is to involve our beach-going community members in keeping our beaches clean. The emphasis with be on encouraging children to participate in helping the environment and educating the public on the threats litter poses to wildlife. In addition, we will also teach people how to reduce their carbon footprints and plastic usage. Ultimately, we would love for town, county, and state beaches to adopt this program.

Our students will connect with nature in our own neighborhood and learn about conservation and activism in the process.

We will inform as many people as we can about the harmfulness of straws. We will get in touch with local businesses and try our hardest to convince them to use compostable or reusable straws.

The 5 girls who proposed the plan to a teacher got a response from Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and the Environmental Protection Commission. Our PTSO is helping to recruit volunteers. Our project will pull debris from the canal on Saturday, April 27th of 2019. We hope to get a "water goat" to catch further debris from traveling down stream from our location.

My project will be monthly Bay Trail cleanups with a coalition of Amelia Earhart Elementary School, Lincoln Middle School and Alameda High School students, as well as any community members who want to join. Every month, on low-tide days, we will walk to the Bay Trail with buckets, trash-grabbers, gloves, and a wagon. We shall proceed to pick up trash and debris for two hours. We will also weight all the trash we pick up and compile the data to send to the NOAA. My project will build fellowship between people of different backgrounds and help our students be protectors of our waters. Additionally, as there is a bird sanctuary right next to the Bay Trail, my project will protect its inhabitant by keeping the shared waters clean and sanitary for avian habitats.

A group of students researched potential causes of red tide and were shocked to discover that runoff from fertilizers might contribute to increased and more severe red tides, a naturally occurring phenomena. They decided to create a YouTube video to educate other students as well as present to our second graders.

Students learned about the dangers of plastic pollution, then planned and orchestrated a school-wide clean up and education campaign.

This project will provide our school with a safe space for academic studies. We plan to do this by having students from the Latin department, and a few other teachers in the school collaborate together in an effort to restore the courtyard and pond.
