Waste Data Collection Project.
As a part of our Advanced Learners Program, some students have been working on creative challenges in math, writing, and hand-on projects involving critical thinking. They’ve worked on exchanging ideas as a team, coming up with a plan of action, executing that plan, and testing the results to see where we can make improvements. As a long-term project students have been logging their interaction with waste. Each student has recorded location, waste types, recycling codes on products, and disposal methods, which they graphed to visualize the results of their own work.
