The STEM challenge (science, technology, engineering and maths) asked Belgian and American schools to built a prototype of an invention for a more sustainable classroom. A group of 9 motivated girls from the Musica Mundi School decided to take part in the project and developed a biodegradable ink (the main chemical pollution in schools) from a local ecosystem.
Under Harriet Gibson’s supervision, our Management Team member and Naguissa Bostaille & Kate Morrison, our teachers, they set up the permaculture garden and produced their own ink from vegetable waste (red onion skins, green leaves, red pepper…). In order to use their ink, they also built their own pen made of bamboo.
A nice project and our girls really want to win!
Verdict: End of June!
