By the end of the school year, the IB science classes hope to have the student body get involved in helping the school by putting otherwise discarded food into compost bins.
The IB chemistry, physics, and biology classes are initiating a plan in which compost bins will be placed in the cafeteria so that the biodegradable food students do not eat can be used as fertilizers in the school’s gardens and grass fields. When polled, 7 out of 10 students said they throw away some part of their meal, which could be used to be made into fertilizer. The compost bins will be environmentally friendly and reduce the waste produced by the school.
By setting the bins up, the IB science department hopes that students will be willing to take part in this project, as they plan to keep the bins well into the future so that they become a regular part of George Mason.
