Solar Panel Installation, Campus Composting, and Plastic Bans, Oh My!

The Grades of Green Team at Santa Monica High School is taking on Grades of Green’s Students In Action Activity to implement green projects in their community. From solar panel installation and campus composting to bans on water bottles and Expo Markers, this team hopes to improve not just one but several areas of the environment! Using the MISO (Media, Interview, Survey, Observation) which is currently being developed by Green Team teacher Ben Kay, students developed a clear plan to gather research on their chosen topic as well as ideas on who they need to present their research to in order to create real change. The final portion of their projects will include an awareness campaign on their topic to help educate their fellow peers and community members on environmental issues.
