Lincoln Magnet Students, In Environmental Protection And Lessons

Discarded electronic products of nearly ninety percent in the country were shipped to Asia or Africa area women and children smelled traces of gold, Lincoln primary school grade seventh breckyn Lyon said on Tuesday.
Lyons and some of her classmates researched the dangers of throwing away electronics, also known as e-waste, as part of a seventh-grade learning initiative focused on protecting and sustaining resources at Lincoln Magnet.
All of the seventh-grade projects were displayed Tuesday in an exhibition open to parents at the school, 300 S. 11th St., called “Our Land, Our Future.”
Lyons said she learned a lot about the dangers of not properly recycling e-waste, such as printers and television consoles, while working on the project.
“It’s really having a big effect on our environment,” she said. “You never know what is going to happen to it if you throw it away.”
Jennifer Gilson, a math teacher at Lincoln Magnet, said this is the first year the school has hosted the exhibition.
The school invited different speakers to talk to the seventh-graders in September and then had the students fill out a survey to determine what areas of the environment they were interested in, Gilson said.
Students then researched the topics and created a final project. Some of the projects included a video, an audio recording of an interview with a specialist or a brochure created on a computer, she said.
”We want them to become aware of what some of the issues are and why it is important,” Gilson said. “Hopefully this will make them better global citizens, which starts right here at home.”
The project of Madison Campbell, Kaylee Wobig, Xavier Cooper and Zack Wheelhouse focused on alternative energy.
Campbell said the group researched obstacles in using wind, hydro and solar energy. Through their research, she added, they learned how to conserve energy by taking shorter showers and unplugging chargers when finished, for example.
The project also allowed the group to collaborate by using the online program Google Docs, a free, Web-based application in which documents and spreadsheets can be created, edited and stored online.
Morgan Hubbard, another seventh-grader at Lincoln Magnet, said she focused her project on the importance of recycling. Her group learned about some of the reasons why people don’t recycle and how landfills are becoming full.
The research rubbed off on her as well, she said.
“Now I really know what happens, and I want to keep recycling,” Hubbard said.
