Casco Bay High School
Portland, ME

High school juniors studied the science and politics of global climate change, including creating individual research projects on alternatives to fossil fuels. The reports were presented to a panel of energy experts. They then investigated the impacts of Hurricane Sandy as a case study of a destructive climate event, and partnered with students at Channel View High School, an EL school in Rockaway, NYC that was closed from storm damage.

The Portland students traveled to Rockaway, NYC to see the devastation of the storm firsthand and to tell the stories of students and other residents whose homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. Teams of students created documentary videos highlighting the personal impact of the storm.

While in NYC, the students also volunteered half of their week to repair and restore damaged homes and businesses.
