We started our first environmental project 6 years ago, which involved grade 7 students studying how we could extend the growing season in our greenhouse. They learned about heat transfer and made a series of modifications to the greenhouse. The grade 8 students designed a system to harvest the rainwater for the greenhouse from the school roof. They implemented a system called “first flush” that discards contaminated water before it enters the water reservoir. The grade 9 students researched and fabricated a highly efficient hydroponic system to grow lettuce for use in our school, reducing our carbon footprint, so less fossil fuels need to be used to bring in food from other communities.
