Principal, Mr. Tim Young

Superintendent, Dr. Suzanne Lacey

D3-Charles R. Drew Middle School

Charles R. Drew Middle School set up a 7th-grade project-based learning (PBL) project designed to challenge students to create solutions to today’s urgent environmental problem: reducing plastic pollution in waterways. Through this cross-curricular PBL project, students learned about the human impact on local and global ecosystems, the history and use of plastic production, the impact of plastic ingestion on animals, and the chemical impact of plastic on plants. Through research, collaboration, and creativity, students developed practical solutions by completing different project components in each content area. This PBL influenced a group of students to implement, Recycling in Drew (RID). These students researched the impact a recycling program could make, gathered information on area recycling companies, and presented their idea to the principal. Impressed, administrators contacted the researched companies, and recycling bins were delivered. Daily, students were seen pushing large, green recycling bins around the cafeteria during lunch and breaks and emptying small, blue classroom recycling bins. Collection efforts resulted in 954 pounds of paper and plastic in one year. RID students also shared the importance of recycling with the mayor and city council members in Lincoln. The mayor responded by adding ten recycling bins to city buildings. As a result, students witnessed how successful collaboration, research, and a thoroughly planned and written proposal can spark a change not only in their school but also in the community.
