4j students in 15 schools, ages ranging from Pre-k to 12th grade, have been working hard as artists for the Parachutes for the Planet Project. The focus has been on the little a in *STEaM- art, as well as awareness around plastic pollution in our waterways.
(*Science, Technology, Engineering, art, and Mathematics.)
We are planning for each school site to display their parachutes on May 11th.
Here is a link to the project site:
Parachutes will be collected (close to 40- 12′ parachutes!) and displayed locally. Date and place TBD
After the local display, the parachutes will be sent to the Mother Earth Project headquarters in Maryland where they will be part of two larger exhibits in Washington D.C. -one July 21st and the other in October.
Stay tuned for more information!
