Science Club News

Posted

The Roots & Shoots group has a campaign underway to reduce plastic waste. To that end, there is currently a reusable water bottle sale underway. Pre-order a bottle from any science club member or Mrs. Cunard for $10. Proceeds will go towards the installation of a water bottle filler in the school! The group is also writing a grant for funds as well.

There will be a Science Cafe presentation on Friday, December 8th in the school library at 6pm. Dr. Schiller will talk about pediatric orthopedic injuries. All are invited. Students may sign up using the google form sent to them in their school email. Attendance counts towards STEM Certificate.

The Greenhouse group is making strides towards sustainability & zero waste. They have been busy growing kale and swiss chard which will be harvested shortly for Mrs. Dahmer's cooking classes. Plants are watered with rain water collected from the greenhouse gutters. The group is also composting vegetable waste from the cafeteria and cooking classes along with shredded paper in our new composters purchased with grant money from Mass Agriculture in the Classroom.
