About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Fact : Carbon Dioxide contained in the pollution can affect the power of concentration A lot of schools located in the middle of a city usually have a same problem, they don't have enough place and land to plant trees when it is actually needed to reduce the air pollution. Usually when they have some amount of land, they will use it for other purposes since they think it is more important and useful compared to making park or green area. As the result, the air pollution increase.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

To solve this problem, my group has an idea to make a "GREEN CORNER"."GREEN CORNER" is a way to plant trees using less spaces since we will plant the trees (we use ivy and sirih gading)in plastic bottles then hang it on the wall. The first step is to collect then reuse the plastic bottles (the bottles came from students from our school).The second step is to fill the bottles with enough soil, fertilizer, and seeds. To make the trees grow, we need to make holes around the bottles so that we can water it and the trees can get carbon dioxide for doing photosynthesis.The third step is to arrange the bottles so that it will look nice when it is hung (so "GREEN CORNER" is not only used to reduce pollution but also can be used for decoration). The last step is to hang the bottles on the wall using nails.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

By making this "GREEN CORNER", we can reduce the air pollution around us because trees will take in carbon dioxide for doing photosynthesis then produce oxygen. This will make the air cleaner and cleaner air can make students concentrate more."GREEN CORNER" also can make students realize how important our environment is and teach them to care and protect the environment starting with the nearest environment at school.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Our peers and competitors are those who also try to maximize land use, but our group is very different since we will not only maximize land use but also reduce pollution.

SMPK 1 BPK Penabur cares about environment which is shown by planting trees in front every class,on every floor.

Identify what is innovative about your solution in 1-2 short sentences [136 characters]

This innovation will help many schools which want to help to reduce pollution but don't have enough land to plant trees.

Social Impact
What has been the impact of your solution to date?

Starting on March, our group has started to prepare the seed and when it has been ready, we will plant it in the plastic bottles. The plants will reduce carbon dioxide from the air, which can make our school environment healthier.

What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?

we predict that this innovation will start showing the result on next month. The impact is that students will be able to concentrate more since there is cleaner in the class and its surroundings.

What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?

The problem we concern is that the plants will not grow healthily because of many factors such as lack of nutrition, sunlight, or water. But we will overcome it by placing the bottles in a place with enough sunlight and we will also create holes around the bottles so that we can spray water. Before we plant the seed in the soil, we will mix the soil with enough fertilizer and if this is possible, we will change the soil every 5 months so that it will always be enough nutrients for the plants to grow. We will also use ivy because it is strong since it can survive with little sunlight.

Winning entries present a strong plan for how they will achieve and track growth. Identify your six-month milestone for growing your impact
