    • The Recycling Project
      • As a group, we have decided to create an interdisciplinary unit that focuses on the amount of waste products we produce on a daily basis.
      • After gathering this data, we plan facilitate a community based project that seeks to reduce this amount of waste through various recycling programs.
    • Types of Waste
      • For this project, we will focus on three types of waste:
          • Cans/Bottles
          • Paper products
          • E-Waste (e.g. old computers and other assorted electronic devices)
    • School/Community Involvement
      • In order to increase awareness, we would ask students to do the following:
        • Take a guided tour of a landfill.
        • Take a guided tour of a recycling facility.
        • Weigh the total amount of paper waste accumulated on a typical school day.
        • Conduct research on e-waste that defines e-waste, examines the health concerns as well as the global/economic issues that arise from e-waste.
    • Community Partners
      • Work with local businesses (e.g. Target, Best Buy, Circuit City) in order to set up designated “drop off days” when people can dispose of old electronic equipment properly.
      • Talk to local, elected officials in an attempt to increase public awareness.
    • Technology Tools
      • Video documentation of the project that would require the use of video editing software and the creation of a vodcast.
      • A public website to make vodcasts and other important information (i.e. important events, websites) available.
      • A Powerpoint or Photostory that seeks to educate those unfamiliar with e-waste
    • Reflection/Assessment
      • To monitor our success, we will set up a blog that will record the data collected as well as the reactions from the community at large.
