SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE TEAM
Four Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School Students recently came back from Washington, D.C. with a second place win in the National School of the Future Competition. The two 8th graders; Isabelle and Izzy worked together with two 6th graders Megan and Alexis. Together the girls created quite a buzz around their design and their ability to create such a professional presentation. The official press release described the girls project as follows;
"The $1,500 second place prize went to Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School for their highly professional presentation. As an introduction, the team produced an outstanding video, demonstrating an unusual grasp of social responsibility and environmental topics. They conducted comprehensive research of green materials and the green systems, including geothermal, wind and solar power that they integrated into their eco-friendly sustainable design. Lyme-Old Lyme students fashioned their own "Cool Globe," following extensive exploration of the current popular program. Placing their school in the center of the community, they designed features to create a healthy, comfortable and safe environment for everyone. "
