GW High students use tech to think green

Posted: Updated:

Protecting our environment starts with educating the youth of our island and students from George Washington High School are learning how science, technology, engineering and math play a part in securing a healthy environment for the future. Biology teacher Alexandra Benevente told KUAM News, "With my class specifically what we did was I had my students research what environmental issue they are passionate about and we have our laptop carts that are provided by DOE, and they researched what would be a good project for them to work on."

Each student created a project using green technology to address an environmental issue, with Benavente saying, "We have some students who did solar ovens, we have solar stills, solar energy, and we other students who did hydropower so power with water." Many projects focused on alternative forms of energy and alternative forms of batteries. "Cell phones are a big thing for them now so they wanted to find out ways to charge their cell phones obviously cell phones are something important to them at this generation that's one of the things they talked about," she added.

In addition students to alternative forms of energy students learned how to grow a garden making a stem garden utilizing their math skills to develop the garden, and learning how carbon dioxide aids in plant growth.
