National Geographic GeoChallenge
 
Through Tackling Plastic!, students are tasked with investigating the issue of single-use plastic pollution in our waterways by teaming up, identifying a problem, designing a solution, and ultimately, making an impact!

Topic for 2019-2020 - The Voyage of the Mayflower
2020 marks the 400th Anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of the Plymouth Colony. Imagine you are one of the passengers on the Mayflower. Knowing 
what materials were available in 1620, what would you have packed to prepare for the trip 
and starting a new life in the wilderness? After experiencing more than two months at sea 
then finally landing at Plymouth Colony on November 9 1620, do you think you would 
have made different choices and why?
