Their project focused on educating the community about reducing energy usage and how it impacts global warming. The students led presentations at their own school, at nearby Dixie Magnet Elementary and at the BMW Academy at First Baptist Bracktown. The team also handed out fliers outlining ways to reduce energy waste in homes and steps people can take individually, and used social media to reach out to the public.
