September has been a busy month with the Green Team at Lipscomb Academy.
Students on Lipscomb Academy's Green Team have been busy this month! The group gathered and energetically discussed last month’s total solar eclipse. Students at the school got together on August 21st and recorded data throughout the day of what they saw, heard, and had learned about the exciting event. To top off the lesson on the eclipse students constructed their very own edible suns, made entirely of sweets. Lemon cookies, frosting, Twizzlers, M&M’s, and sprinkles made up the different parts of the sun. At the end of our designated time the students put together care packages to send to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The group compiled an assortment of cleaning supplies, like gloves, washrags, trash bags, sponges, and more. The future green leaders of America are well on their way to the creating a greener world for all!

On September 21st, Kevin Colvett, who is the director and professional environmental engineer with The Living Water Project, came to present their current plan to work with The Green Team at Lipscomb Academy Elementary School! Kevin gave an amazing power point presentation along with experiments that every student was able to partake in. “God created our Earth and in some places, it is hard to grow, therefore, he gives others the skills to help people that are in need.” Kevin Colvett. The Green Team has been able to help The Living Water Project by raising money through recycling! In addition, The Living Water Project, as of last week, started drilling for the new solar water pump and heater that will be built in Kenya for Made in the Street Orphanage. Once the solar water pump is built it will be able to be used day or night, provide clean drinking water, electricity for the center, and allow teachers as well as students to charge computers!
