This past school year, Climate Kids - Mexico students from CBTIS 146 have been working on multidisciplinary projects in the areas of communication (English), ecology, mathematics, and engineering. Through this project-based learning framework students created workshops to teach others about climate change and sustainability, developed climate engineering solutions, and more! Check out what these inspiring Climate Kids have been up to!
This past school year, Climate Kids - Mexico students from CBTIS 146 have been working on multidisciplinary projects in the areas of communication (English), ecology, mathematics, and engineering. Through this project-based learning framework students created workshops to teach others about climate change and sustainability, developed climate engineering solutions, performed scientific experiments and used art and games to convey their findings!
Check out some of the student highlights from their semester of hard work!
Students designed sustainable fashion items from recycled materials. Focusing on climate change and marine life themes, these fabulous and creative pieces were on display during a community Pasarela (fashion show) where the meaning for each costume was explained.
Science Fair Experiments
Students developed experiments and workshops focusing on climate science, water monitoring, regional biodiversity, plastics, and marine life. Student presentations on this work were given at the final community event.
In collaboration with engineering instructors who provided expertise in sustainable construction, students learned how to plan and design structures that adapt for climate change impacts and sustainability. Students created scale models from recycled materials to present to the community.
Art and Games
Students created recycled art projects and activities, as well as games, to play with children and younger students. These activities focused on threats to marine species and biodiversity.
Students developed products and information to inform their community of more sustainable choices they could make, such as using homemade cosmetics with organic products or making bags of recycled materials to reduce plastic waste.
Climate Kids - Mexico students hope that with their work they can share knowledge on climate impacts and inspire their community to change their attitudes and actions. In the presentation of their final projects - over 480 people were in attendance! Congratulations Climate Kids on a job well done and keep up the good work!
Climate Kids - Mexico is a collaborative partnership in Tijuana and Northern Baja focused on community-driven outreach, workshops, and environmental stewardship activities led by trained high school ambassadors.
