BNS has won the Department of Sanitation's Team Up To Clean Up City Wide Elementary Level Award.
Thanks to BNS staff, families, and, of course, BNS students, for over 12 years of effort that led to this amazing award.
Thanks to Amy Plattsmeir for cowriting and editing and Ed for uploading the proposal.
And thanks to Andrew and his class...they know what they did!
The image is a shadowbox with photos and found objects created by Steve Wilson. Virtual reality old school. Come to Studio 106A to see the original.
Take some time and read our proposal. It shows what a community can accomplish over time And the photos are adorable.

This stop motion animation replaces one originally created by these students. It was inadvertently erased. Their original artwork and construction was taken apart. They used the photos from a book titled: "Switch On, Switch Off" by Melvin Berger to help explain the concepts behind renewable energy.
Thanks to Beth F, Charles, Andrew, and Ed for the patient and generous technical assistance.
Any technical difficulties are due to this blogger's inexperience with the medium.
