Brea Olinda High classes partner with OCDE’s Inside the Outdoors program to promote water conservation

IMG_0042Students enrolled in AP environmental science courses at Brea Olinda High School recently spent their lunch break educating schoolmates and staff about the importance of water conservation.

Spearheaded by OCDE’s Inside the Outdoors program and led by Brea Olinda High teacher Andrea Ramos, the “Water Expo” on May 19 featured a number of display tables set up by students from each period to reflect unique themes, including “What Would a Waterless Future Look Like” and “A Look at Fresh Water in the World.”

We’re told students also created their own marketing materials, including a Snapchat filter, an Instagram frame and the hashtag #bohswaterexpo. Those who attended were even asked to take a pledge to protect water and reduce the amount they personally use each day.

“We are so thankful for the amazing partnership we’ve forged with Inside the Outdoors,” Ramos said. “The Water Expo provided a wonderful creative outlet for students to take what they’ve learned and share it with others.”
