I was extremely impressed with the progress that my peers talked about during their presentations. It’s great to hear the pride in their voices when they talk about the enthusiasm they see at their meetings. The ideas that they have all presented have been very diverse, and since some kids are more knowledgeable than many of us are, their ideas of fascinating and very creative.
It’s also interesting to see the challenges they face. According to some of the presentations, some schools didn’t even have recycling programs due to, for example, budget cuts. Yet those mentors seem to be even more persistent and are incredibly motivated by the progress their students make.
