Eco Ryders will host four rounds of three week long comprehensive environmental justice classes. The classes will review issues that effect local Bronx youth (example... Lead poisoning, asthma rates, zoning laws) and review how these issues connect to the environment and to policy. Each week will go over an umbrella subject moving from Food&Health to the Environment and then to Policy. Each week will look at the umbrella subject from a local, national and then global perspective in the hopes of showing students how all these issues connect. In addition students will engage in hands on stewardship by helping to maintain community gardens and perform lead testing in community food gardens. As a reward and intensive for joining Eco Ryders students will be taught how to design their own skateboards for free. We like using skateboarding as a tool to attract interest because it also helps to promote healthy living.

It will bring beautiful trees to my neighborhood. I will work with the city of Los Angles free tree program and TreePeople to get as many trees planted as I can.

The project is to design a city that functions solely on alternative forms of energy. Students will build vehicles using solar, wind, water and biofuels in a green city. They will use mainly Lego kits to make solar cars, trains, cranes, wind generators and water turbines to provide power to the "Green City".

Basically a megablocks is when you take a few large city blocks in an area and prevent large vehicles like vans or trucks from entering forcing them to go around the perimeter. The speed limit inside the space is also limited to ten mph for any other vehicles. curbside parking is also replaced with underground parking allowing more space for pedestrians and lowering air pollution.

Our project will help in planting six trees on a barren street that contains very few plants. Our club is partnered with a non-profit organization called TreePeople who will help our volunteers learn the process of properly planting the trees. Many of our volunteers have the title as a Supervisor Volunteer because they have had experience with planting and caring for numerous trees. Their role is to assist any volunteer that is still unsure of the process or is their first time in planting trees. We will promote our event to our club to receive as many volunteers as we can get. Our club is always ready and happy to help the environment, and our supervisors will help in overseeing the event.

Our project will be to plant trees using compost from Cal State University, Northridge Sustainability Institute. We want to ensure that the trees will have a healthy start in order to survive in harsh conditions.

Getting engaged: We will investigate what is a satellite, which materials are used in order to build one and why are the necessary for Earth sciences. Community mapping: We will interview people in our island and ask them how the felt when they saw the oil spill and how it affected their lives and we will write an article expressing their opinion. We will contact the environmental organization of Salamina (PERIVOS) in order to give us a talk about the environmental impact of the oil spill. Taking action: we will build our own satellites, using LEGO We Do 2.0 , we will write code in order to program to move around our inflated Earth. We will try to find data (pictures from the Copernicus / Sentinel satellites) in order to investigate how large was the oil split. Celebrate: We will present our work during the “Astronerds saving the Earth” classroom party.

Students engage in monthly cooking classes that focus on seasonal and healthy recipes. The 5th graders were eager to reduce their carbon emissions and support local farmers after learning about how they can reduce their impact on the environment. With this grant money, we will supplement our grocery store produce with more local ingredients, calculating the miles saved for each ingredient.

The project seeks to get every house in Coleraine a small plant, if all goes to plan I'm going to enlist the help of the council and a few local garden centers! Hopefully we will have enough plants donated to us to complete this task by the end of next month preferably in a smaller amount of time.
