Students Calculate How Sea Level Rise Impacts Their Own Communities
The Cortada Foundation brought its sea level rise initiative to Broward County Schools in February. Xavier Cortada's art initiative shows awareness of how sea level rise impacts South Florida's communities. Students and Plantation Mayor Nick Sortal were engaged as the program combined science and art.
Paladins researched their home's elevation and drew the number on a sign to be placed in their yard hoping to initiate conversations about the issue with their neighbors. Cortada painted a mural at South with School's elevation to top it off.
Sloggers Go Deep in the 'Glades
A memorable trip through the years has been the slogging and airboat experience.
After learning on location at the Sawgrass Recreation Park, 9th graders learned how "we are all affected because we are all connected," the basic theme of the entire 9-12 magnet program. On the airboat students identified wildlife and tested the water quality. More photos in FIELD TRIPS.
