The Not So Fast, Food cluster recommended changes to the school’s Lagniappe Lunch menu because the members think it is important for students at ESA to have healthy and environmentally friendly lunches. They researched eight restaurants who use environmentally friendly packaging, and chose three menu options for each restaurant. They proposed the healthier lunch menu to the owner of Lagniappe Lunch. They also hope to reduce the amount of food waste and trash at lunch time, and they tested reusable lunch box options and offered suggestions to those who pack lunches.
The Tinker Lab cluster created and exhibited assemblage art made from re-purposed found objects that would otherwise end up in a landfill, and organized and co-hosted a Fix it Café at the Lower School.
The Improv cluster gave multiple performances, two on the Lafayette Campus and two at Cite des Arts. The group members researched possible venues and pricing, and also worked with students who are interested in improv to teach them games during snack recess or after school.
The Coding cluster worked on creating a video game or coding game to share with other students. The group members narrowed down game platform choices by exploring various coding and game creator options.
