Over the first semester, eighth grade students in the Green Tech Academy did a project that somehow improves the school, called the Capstone Independent Research Project.

“The projects that have been done are good,” Green Tech Academy teacher Nate Rosenberg said.

Different students did various things to impact the campus.

“I did the project on weeding and preparing the outdoor volleyball courts for new sand,” eighth grader Emma Plunkett said.

Most of the students who did the project learned different skills and ways to positively affect the school and earth. 

“I learned how to make a garden,” eighth grader Sam Lorfing said.

The teachers wanted the students to perform to the best of their abilities.

“I want them to learn that whenever you go in life you are going to have to make big decisions,” Rosenberg said.

Students found the projects rewarding.

“I really enjoyed painting the mural. I found it fun,” eighth grader Aleisha Thompson said.
