Highlighting Sustainability Work in the Tahoma School District
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Married to the 3rd man to land on the moon, Nancy Conrad has started the Spirit
of Innovation Competition in his honor. The challenge forces you to use systems
thinking. Nancy wondered why high school students couldn't do amazing things. So
the competition allows students to create innovative products as a team to
better humanity. The team that won this year was actually from NC, they created
an air-quality detector. This device could detect the ozone in the air. Ozone's
presence can actually increase the chance for death through lung inflammation.
Tahoma is a school that is so far advanced in sustainability and systems
thinking that this challenge is something that we could take on!
