The Problem

Young students need to be taught early the importance of biodiversity and the role of humans in maintaining a safe environment. Students can and should teach their families the importance of taking charge of their own community and reduce pollution through a team clean up and create materials to teach others to do the same.

Our Plan

-Teach students about aquaponics through a classroom aquaponics tank -Have a visit from the local park district environmental action team -Create a plan to clean up a student-selected area of our community
