Students at SEEQS kick off their Essential Question of Sustainability (EQS) project-based course each semester with a series of field studies. Students examining “What is the value of our Stuff?” reflected on their recent visits to the power plant where our island’s waste (e.g. excess “stuff”) is burned to produce energy, and to an art exhibit at a local museum that features plastic and garbage waste repurposed as art.

    I really like how your class went to two places to learn about waste and its various uses. It was cool how you got to watch a video about why they are burning waste. The art museum was also interesting because your class got to see how artists use garbage to make something new. Maybe your class could try collecting some trash and make art from it similar to the artists in the museum.
