Project Description
We are part of a robotics team. For the project we had to solve a problem. Our problem was how do we tell others about this problem. We found several solutions. They were :
We contacted the president, two of our village trustees, 5 county legislatures, the Bronx Zoo, The Australian Wildlife Hospital, a girl scout who was able to go and discover marine biology. an ecologist(he won the big green help award on the Nickeloedeon Awards, and and The World Wildlife Federation. Along with that we started a recycling program in our communities and raised over 20 dollars which was used to adopt a polar bear and a sea turtle. We also took part in a Save the Trees petition which says that you should replace evry tree you cut down. In future we are planning to plant flowers and trees in our schools and by our local railroads and start clubs in our schools that will accomplish projects bassed on going green and stopping global warming.

Welcome to T4PE! Your project description above is really cool - looks like you are very busy. I'm wondering how/why the robotics team is so involved in conservation (not that I have a problem with it.I don't. It's just that usually robotics teams work with, well, robots)?

Let me know if you need any help getting a project started or using the site. As Project Advisor, that's what I'm here for!

Pesticides

Pesticides are killing the bees and affecting many other species negatively, yet if we stop them, because of increased monoculture, specific grain pests would ravage the fields and eat everything in sight. Food would not be capable os sustainably being grown. So then, the question becomes, how do we stop the bee deaths and continue the successful farming without pesticides agriculture relies upon?See More

People's Climate March

People's Climate MarchSeptember 21st,I pull on my cap and volunteer shirt, walk to Columbus Circle Subway Station, all while simultaneously yawning. It's 7:30 in the morning. I'm already on duty. As I gaze around, I glimpse passerby in absurd and fascinating costumes. A man or a sun, a man-sun strolls along. Someone with a pointed warlock hat- not really sure what he was supposed to be.People are already here, committed to the act of defying climate change. The day progresses, my arms ache from…See More

CCD of Honey Bees

CCD of Honey BeesColony Collapse Disorder among the Honey Bees is no longer a worry of the past. It is a legitimate concern among environmentalists and researchers. Why are the colonies being lost? This is the ultimate question that must be addressed. If we ignore the increasing death of bees, we may threaten the cultivation of various foods, flowers, jeopardizing the sustenance all creatures depend on. Not only to honey bees make honey, but they pollinate fruits, vegetables, and various…See More
