Leila's Solar Tree

Solar trees are one way to capture clean energy. They look like real trees, but instead of leaves on the branches, there are solar panels. Each panel moves to always face the sun. This allows the panels to absorb as much energy as possible every day. Wires run through the branches and down the trunk and connect to a battery at the base of the tree. The battery stores power for later!

Carver's Butterfly Garden

Butterfly gardens are a great way to help local insects, but it’s important to plant the right flowers. Each butterfly garden kit needs the right seeds to start a butterfly garden in the neighborhood. Butterflies need host plants and nectar plants. Host plants are food and shelter for butterfly eggs and caterpillars. For example milkweed and passionflower. Nectar plants are food for adult butterflies. Some examples include golden rods and Texas star hibiscus. With this type of kit, anyone can help protect local wildlife.

Emily's Water Purifier

With a water purifier, water is first collected in a big tank at the top of the container. Then the water runs through a series of filters. The first filter is rocks – these will catch any large twigs or leaves that might get into the tank. The second filter is charcoal – this layer helps clean and purify the water. Then the water is drained through fine sand to remove any impurities. Finally, the clean water drips through a cheese cloth and into a container. Once the water is purified it can be used for a variety of things such as watering plants!

Noah's Litter Collector

Plastic and litter collector is a device that is powered by a motor and driven with a remote control. The scoop picks up the litter and then drops it into a container at the back of the device. Once the container is full, bring the boat back to shore, empty it, and go again. Make sure you recycle what you collect with this device!
