OLM GIN Projects

Seventeen high school students and their teachers Ms. Freire, Ms. Braga and Mr. Resende are traveling to Colombia in March to participate in the Global Issues Network Conference, an event where students from South America meet and present their projects tackling global issues that will affect their future. 

Greenspiration
HS Teams want to inspire and provide awareness to the importance and strength of small actions impacting our society. Greenspiration is working with three projects: Meatless Mondays, Save the Bees and Food Waste.
Their essential question: Can we inspire our school's community to live greener by raising awareness of the impact of our daily habits?
Ms. Freire
The Plastic Beach
HS Teams want to inspire and provide awareness to the importance and strength of small actions impacting our society. One of the issues addressed is microplastics, that even though they are not easily seen, they are deeply affecting our lives.
Their essential question: What actions can be taken to diminish the presence and negative impacts of microplastics?
Ms. Freire
The Composting Project
OLM STEM students are going to present their composting project 2020 at the GIN Conference in Medellin in March. They are proud to share that they have already saved 10kg of school organic waste from being sent to the landfill and, through composting, transformed that waste into fertilizer and humus.

Their essential question: How can the use of composting reduce Climate Change and increase sustainability in the school environment?
