2012 WINNERS!
2nd Grade Scientists Win the "We Can Change the World" Challenge...Again!

The Second Grade Science Club was chosen for its project on reducing water run-off from its school campus. The team worked to decrease any pollutants in run-off and clean water waste. Through careful observation of the school’s site and school buildings, the team noted that new trashcans with lids were needed, that there were major leaks in the school’s gutters and that many of the school’s water fixtures were leaking.

As a result of the students’ work, the problems have been fixed. The team also planned the installation of a rain barrel and a rain garden to clean water run-off before it enters the local culvert. Finally, the students taught the student body what they had learned in an interactive, demonstration-rich assembly.


The winners receive their Agents of Change bags filled with prizes.
