Hello!

Welcome to our third blog post! Since we posted last, buy we have made some great progress, viagra 100mg and added an element of fun and silliness to our project.

Last week, troche we took a field trip to the Sustainability Academy in Burlington, where we had an interesting and informative tour from the fifth grade and maintenance crew. We learned how they remodeled their entire building, and how they heat their school geothermally (from the earth). They have dimmable lights, photo sensors, and lots of natural light. They also have a great method of cutting down on waste; all the food not eaten in a week is given to the food shelf. It was great to get insight on how other schools have become energy efficient, and how big a role the students play in this. Thank you to the Sustainability Academy!

We are currently assembling our new compost bin for browns, as our handmade wood holder for it is complete. We are excited to have the hard earned satisfaction of having our very own student-run compost bin!

We also had a lot of fun using our Infrared thermometer, or as we call it, the “laser temperature gun”. We did the entire upstairs half of the building, and we enjoyed ourselves by recording data and pointing the thermometer dramatically (with sound effects, of course).
