Seabury Hall: A Marker for Sustainability

One student at Seabury Hall was driven to ignite a change in the mindset of youth, educators, and suppliers to value the importance of more environmentally responsible choices over disposable convenience. By calculating the conversion factor based off of teachers’ daily marker use, a Seabury Hall 11th grader aimed to replace all disposable dry erase markers on campus with refillable, environmentally friendly whiteboard markers.

LANAI HIGH & ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: MY SPROUT NETWORK

Students at Lanai High & Elementary School created “My Sprout Network”, which aims to teach students and the community about self-sustainability along with background information on different types of gardening styles, such as permaculture and monoculture gardening.

Montessori School of Maui: Solar Panels on the Garden - SPOG

Students at Montessori School of Maui designed and built a solar-powered vermicompost tea brewer. The tea brewer brews a liquid that will increase the amount of healthy microbes in the tea. The tea is applied to the soil so that the soil can absorb the healthy bacteria.
