Columbus Tustin Middle School’s Science Department is sponsoring its second annual Climate Solutions Summit on Tuesday, May 14 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the school’s Activity Center, 17952 Beneta Way, Tustin.
Over 200 sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students from the Columbus Tustin Magnet program are participating in the event, according to science/STEAM Magnet teacher Jacque Cunningham.
“Columbus Tustin’s Climate Solutions Summit was an idea inspired by students’enthusiasm to create awareness, educate and offer solutions to slow the global problem of climate change,” Cunningham said.
“As research scientists, our students have gathered information on various climate topics to educate our community and offer take-home solutions to minimize human impact on the environment. Their final projects will be presented at the summit,” she added.
A variety of activities will take place during the Climate Solutions Summit, including student presentations and games, awareness and solutions projects, vegan and vegetarian cuisine booths, composting made easy and a raffle drawing. Students have also made cloth vegetable bags, planters from re-purposed plastic, stickers and bookmarks, and will be selling bamboo toothbrushes and utensils, stainless steel water bottles, eco-friendly stuffed animals and other items.
Tustin Unified School District teachers and staff, parents and the public are invited to attend the Columbus Tustin Climate Solutions Summit. For more information, call the school at (714) 730-7352.
