We've Worked on Some Amazing Projects

Virtual Programs

Challenge:

During the pandemic, how does an education team continue teaching?

Solution:

Build a studio, quickly! Incorporate green screen and live stage capabilities for live webcasts with classes. Provide camera with pan, tilt, zoom and presets for one-person operation if needed.

Water Conservation

Challenge:

How to bring a visually compelling, hands-on program about water conservation into the classroom.

Solution:

Create the “Water Puzzle”, an interconnected series of large panels from which students manipulate places to label the water cycle, install a low-flow shower head, or even install drip irrigation.

Challenge:

Take students on a virtual field trip highlighting the important of water quality and how they can eliminate polluted runoff from their homes.

Solution:

Develop two interactive 3D boards that illustrate a house and a nearby creek. We manipulate the behavior of homeowners to see how it improves the water quality of the creek, such as only letting rain go down the storm drain, picking up litter, or pulling weeds instead of using herbicide.

Challenge:

Demonstrate the importance of reducing methane emissions caused by organic waste going to the landfill.

Solution:

Create a course that informs students about the importance of reducing food waste in landfills using videos, science experiments, and a sorting activity to explain decomposition, greenhouse gas emissions, and how to compost.

New Anaerobic Digester

Challenge:

Educate the public about a new composting technology in our community.

Solution:

Create a virtual field trip that explains and illustrates the function of an anaerobic digester and the role it plays in compost, renewable energy production, and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

Commercial Recycling and Composting

Challenge:

Inform businesses about current CA state regulations regarding recycling and organics composting.

Solution:

Team of commercial recycling experts performs site visits to local businesses and assist them in becoming compliant with state regulations.

Solid Waste Education

Challenge:

Help students learn to dispose of their waste in the proper way.

Solution:

Educators visit classrooms and present information about the landfill, natural resources, and how to recycle in a meaningful, hands-on way.

Zero Waste Goals

Challenge:

Define and describe California’s zero waste goals and relate them back to managing solid waste and environmental stewardship.

Solution:

Design a presentation that exemplifies the importance of creating less waste by illustrating the impacts that natural resource extraction, manufacturing, and moving products has on our environment. Brainstorm with the students where they can reduce waste in their everyday lives.

Challenge:

Create a hands-on space for students to explore while visiting the landfill.

Solution:

Develop an education center where six hands-on exhibits demonstrate the way a landfill is built, how materials are recycled, and the importance of disposing of waste in the proper way.
