Students included in their advocacy work a presentation of their proposal to administration, a trip to the Hennepin Energy Recovery Center (HERC) and collaboration with the engineering staff in our building. Through these experiences, students were able to gain experience in how to effect change through seeing an issue, designing a proposal including a budget and resource requirements, and public speaking which included being prepared to take questions regarding their proposal. Students involved in this project are also in the process of applying for grant funding that will allow them to further their work in helping to make us more environmentally conscientious at North. Way to go team!
