First, I'll make a soil box that others can see and will want. The design has already been carefully created by makesoil.org. I will then contact neighbors, family and friends to join in and list their sites on their map at makesoil.org.

We have started by identifying areas of our school we wished to plant trees and bushes, others we want to maintain, and we have connected with a local community partner to plant trees and build bonds with residents of our new local community.

The event will be an annual STEM conference where speakers will be invited to come to give workshops on different STEM skills, speak on panels regarding the intersection between computer science and other fields and how it can be used for social good. There will also be more social panelists, who speak about Imposter Syndrome and how to get over it as well as speak about local political issues, like gun violence, race, and climate change, to hopefully mobilize the youth.

Kids for Positive Change is launching a "Choose a Platform" Initiative which lists various Climate Change Contributors. We will engage students with an interactive presentation about Climate Change and emphasize how deforestation is a main Climate Change Contributor. The KPC program will highlight palm oil plantations, cattle ranching and mining for metals used in mobile devices, as key problems associated with deforestation. Each problem will align with JGI Campaigns, like the Sustainable Livelihood Program and feature One-Click Campaigns, #EatMeatLess and #ForestisCalling. Students will learn how deforestation impacts not only indigenous communities and wildlife, but because it is a Climate Change Contributor, impacts their community on a local level. One example: Northeast Ohio is experiencing excessive rain which is impacting local farmer's crops. Students will partake in a "Walk in Their Shoes" assignment, where each student will "become" a person or animal that has been impacted by Climate Change, emphasizing those impacted as a direct result of deforestation. Students will study foods containing palm oil using the Cheyenne Zoo Sustainable Palm Oil Shopping App. Students will launch a school-system wide and family-wide survey to learn how many students, parents and teachers are aware of palm oil, how many eat meat and how many upgrade their mobile devices on a regular basis. This survey will extend into the community. Students will share their knowledge with their families and community members through Classroom-Community Action KPC events, City Council meeting and Board of Education Meetings and call for community action! Students will work individually or in Think Tank Teams and develop solutions for the deforestation problem and take action by implementing solutions throughout their school and community. Possible solutions: Writing to local supermarkets about carrying products made with sustainable palm oil. Using the Sustainable Palm Oil App when shopping. Use student-created shopping list of foods that contain sustainable palm oil. Implementing Meatless Mondays at School and Meatless weeks at home! Pledging to use mobile devices until they are spent and then recycling them, instead of upgrading.

We will generate information cards -recycleware cards - to be displayed or distributed at the point of product acquisition. That way buyers/users will become aware of what they can do and where they can take those products' packaging to be recycled once the products are consumed.

This project will show students the engineering principles involved with flood control, screening for containments in water, and help students develop models to educate others in the community. The portable units can be used for student presentations at Douglas and Sarpy county events, serve as state exhibits, and be used in the 2019 Grades of Green Global Watewr Challenge to educate others internationally. The students will manage their own ecosystems they create plus contribute plant by products for the community programs of pollinator habitat creation and food security to the shelters.

Our project is to fund our school play ground. Our school has been in a remodel stage for 2 years. Our play ground was torn down at the beginning of the remodel. Our kids have not had a play ground in 2 years. We are applying for grants and planning several fundraisers to help with this project.
