Being a Green Eco Warrior Intern – The importance of taking care of the earth

Name: Jack Wright Age: 17 Location: West Hartford, CT Green Eco Warrior Intern Date April 4 2015   I had always been aware of the importance of taking care of the earth, but until my family had an energy audit in my home, I had never witnessed the field work that directly aids sustainability efforts. I recall being both intrigued and inspired by the technique and the thoroughness of the energy audit, which provoked me to ask one of the workers about how they became involved with their work. Before the workers left, I was sure to ask if there was any way that I could be involved in the same field of work. One of the workers put me in contact with Leticia Colon de Mejias, the creator and President of Green Eco Warriors. I emailed Leticia right away, hoping to become further involved with efforts to improve the environment. Soon after, I received a response. That next Saturday, I began my work with Green Eco Warriors. For the past two years, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as an intern with Green Eco Warriors. I love being able to spread environmental awareness to youths through creative mediums. For example, I have helped write and edit scripts for skits, create costumes, and make props. Perhaps my favorite medium is the comic book series, featuring Dinero the frog. The highlight of my time as an intern is definitely the Youth Summit, held at the beginning of last Summer.

The assembly got students excited about saving energy!

As a STEM school it is imperative that we strive to lead the way in providing our students with curriculum, field experiences, assemblies, and resources that embrace the four core components (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).  For the last two years we have worked with the Green Eco Warriors on doing just that. Our 4th and 5th grade students have participated in challenges that involve saving energy in school and at home.  They have received free magazines and books, most notably the “Save Energy, Save Dinero” book.  Our staff and students enjoyed reading it and appreciated the fact that every student got their very own copy. The magazines have useful articles dedicated to STEM topics, activities for students to complete, and contests that challenge students.  We got to participate in the interactive assembly provided by GEW dedicated to stopping the infamous “Phantom Draw.”  This assembly was up close and personal and really got students excited about saving energy.  Our teachers have welcomed the opportunity to be videotaped providing nothing but positive feedback after the performance.  This was an opportunity to discuss how GEW has come through with connecting what students are learning in school with what’s going on in the real world.  Teachers also praised them for addressing Next Generation Science Standards and touching on 5th Grade CMT Science Topics. For our end of year activity GEW has invited us to the Riverfront in Hartford, CT at no cost, for teambuilding and nature based activities.  We will continue to utilize...

Being a Green Eco Warrior Intern – The importance of taking care of the earth

Being a Green Eco Warrior Intern – The importance of taking care of the earth

Name: Jack Wright Age: 17 Location: West Hartford, CT Green Eco Warrior Intern Date April 4 2015   I had always been aware of the importance of taking care of the earth, but until my family had an energy audit in my home, I had never witnessed the field work that directly aids sustainability efforts. I recall being both intrigued and inspired by the technique and the thoroughness of the energy audit, which provoked me to ask one of the workers about how they became involved with their work. Before the workers left, I was sure to ask if there was any way that I could be involved in the same field of work. One of the workers put me in contact with Leticia Colon de Mejias, the creator and President of Green Eco Warriors. I emailed Leticia right away, hoping to become further involved with efforts to improve the environment. Soon after, I received a response. That next Saturday, I began my work with Green Eco Warriors. For the past two years, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as an intern with Green Eco Warriors. I love being able to spread environmental awareness to youths through creative mediums. For example, I have helped write and edit scripts for skits, create costumes, and make props. Perhaps my favorite medium is the comic book series, featuring Dinero the frog. The highlight of my time as an intern is definitely the Youth Summit, held at the beginning of last Summer. Hundreds...

The assembly got students excited about saving energy!

The assembly got students excited about saving energy!

As a STEM school it is imperative that we strive to lead the way in providing our students with curriculum, field experiences, assemblies, and resources that embrace the four core components (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).  For the last two years we have worked with the Green Eco Warriors on doing just that. Our 4th and 5th grade students have participated in challenges that involve saving energy in school and at home.  They have received free magazines and books, most notably the “Save Energy, Save Dinero” book.  Our staff and students enjoyed reading it and appreciated the fact that every student got their very own copy. The magazines have useful articles dedicated to STEM topics, activities for students to complete, and contests that challenge students.  We got to participate in the interactive assembly provided by GEW dedicated to stopping the infamous “Phantom Draw.”  This assembly was up close and personal and really got students excited about saving energy.  Our teachers have welcomed the opportunity to be videotaped providing nothing but positive feedback after the performance.  This was an opportunity to discuss how GEW has come through with connecting what students are learning in school with what’s going on in the real world.  Teachers also praised them for addressing Next Generation Science Standards and touching on 5th Grade CMT Science Topics. For our end of year activity GEW has invited us to the Riverfront in Hartford, CT at no cost, for teambuilding and nature based activities.  We will continue to utilize...

The Green Eco Warriors were enthusiastic and compelling!

This letter is in support for the Green Eco Warriors Save Energy, Save Dinero Challenge.  Our teachers felt the presentation was exceptional. They felt that the topic of energy conservation was delivered in a clear and engaging format for our K through 5th grade students. The Green Eco Warriors were enthusiastic and compelling and kept 100% of the student’s attention.  Our students were very excited to be so involved in the presentation. Many hands were raised to ask and answer questions. Some children had the chance to participate on stage. The book that accompanied the presentation became an immediate learning tool in many classrooms that same day.  Berkshire Trail Elementary School is grateful to have the chance to participate in this energy conservation fundraiser. The ideas of environmental conservation fit very well with our curriculum. Saving energy is one way our students know to help preserve the natural beauty and environment of Western Mass.
