Black Gold Miners – 2011 Junior High School Siemens Team

The Black Gold Miners came to Green Acton in 2011.

Did you know that the average person in the USA produces 4.6 pounds of trash per day? And did you know that 27% of that trash is compostable? This is completely outrageous! A team of eighth graders from R. J. Grey Junior High School is trying to make the Town of Acton a more green and environmentally friendly place by raising awareness about composting. Composting will help the town decrease its carbon footprint, save the town money on landfill spending, and provide residents with free fertilizer.
