Columbus Tustin Middle School’s Science Department is sponsoring its first Climate Change Summit on Thursday, March 8 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the school’s Activity Center, 17952 Beneta Way, Tustin.

Over 200 sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students from the Columbus Tustin Magnet program are participating in the event, according to science/STEAM Magnet teacher Jacque Cunningham George.

“Our students began the school year studying climate and weather.  Their capstone projects addressed current natural disasters around the world and human impact connected to these disasters,” Cunningham George said.  

“As research scientists, our students have gathered information on various topics and are in the process of reasoning out, understanding and offering solutions to help minimize human impact on the environment.   Their final projects will be presented at the Climate Change Summit,” she added.

A variety of activities will take place during the summit, including student presentations and games, awareness and solutions projects, vegan and vegetarian cuisine booths, plant-based recipe books, composting made easy, Elkay ezH2O water filtration filling station fundraising program, raffles prizes (refillable water bottles, stickers, T-shirts and other items) and solutions for reducing the carbon footprint.

Tustin Unified School District teachers and staff, parents and the public are invited to attend the Columbus Tustin School Climate Change Summit.  For more information, call the school at (714) 730-7352.
