Not only would students be able to quickly locate their nearest water fountains, but the analysis would show areas where fountains are lacking. My partner and I will map out all of the water fountains in accessible areas of the campus, including most lecture halls and other common areas. We will indicate the number of fountains, whether it is a hydration station or simply a fountain, the floor level of the fountain, and the building name. Using the total number of fountains at a particular point, we will be able to identify the distribution of fountains throughout the campus and areas where fountains are lacking.

We will build the raised bed and prep the garden with compost materials, soil and manure. The girls and children in Roots and Shoots will plant seedlings for the gardens that they will care for in their own homes. We will dissect seeds and make observations under a dissecting scope. They will journal the various stages of the seed as it grows into an edible plant. Once the plants are mature enough we will add them to the garden where the children can continue to make observations and journal. Once the plants become well established we will offer lessons on making herbal teas and cooking with herbs and vegetables from the garden.

During Earth Week, 2015, teachers in our three elementary schools will put out homemade little boxes and invite children to bring in their loose change to contribute to the drive. In the process, the children will learn about Haiti and the problems that exist there with poverty, sanitation, and soil degradation. Our theme for Earth Week is soil and how important it is to take care of it in order to grow our food and feed us and the people of the world.

Our project shows the surprising lack of compost cans on a campus who's motto is Zero Waste. We showed the stark contrast between how many trash cans are available and how many options for composting are available by mapping where trash cans and compost cans exist in the most popular parts of the UC Davis Camps.

The Mustang School garden will serve as a living classroom for our students to develop a better understanding of agriculture, health and nutrition as well as community responsibility. The work required to maintain the garden is shared across the grades. The germination, planting and harvesting of the crops is also shared across the grades so that each grade is able to take part in the process.

Every year I lead a food drive that raises food and money to fight childhood hunger in my area. I want to help kids like me conduct their own food drives where ever they live and do their part to fight childhood hunger.
