My school has many green initiatives in place.  Students are not completely aware of all the green practices taking place at the school.  My project was to create several display boards that compile several statistics and interesting information about different aspects of the school.  They also feature QR Codes that can be scanned with a smartphone to learn more information about the topic on the board.

They are in the process of being printed on sustainable bamboo boards and are to be installed throughout the school.  My hope is to inspire the students and faculty to be more green at their own homes.  I also hope to better inform the visitors of our school about everything green going on at our school so that they may get inspired to start their own green initiatives.  The project will be a permanent installation and will inspire everyone in the community to further educate themselves about green building.
