EarthTeam’s Antioch High interns have been working hard the past couple of weeks to complete their data training. Our interns have now been trained on how to collect data, compile data and analyze data collected from their campus all while having fun! We can’t wait to see how students will use their new skills to address marine debris in their communities! Below are some pictures and intern’s reflections on the experience.
“Since joining EarthTeam I have learned so many new things one of the most valuable things I think I’ve learned however is how to work with other people in a very efficient way. I think this is very important especially when working in an environment like this one. Another thing I’ve learned is what type of trash is most common here, food wrappers! This wasn’t too suprising, however it helps be more aware of my actions.”- Danielle Marin
“After school we’ve been learning different methods of trash clean-up and ways to prevent trash from going into our oceans. I have obtained many skills in the few weeks I’ve been on the EarthTeam internship such as collecting data, creating ideas and working as a group to make things that are helpful to the environment. I have learned that there is only a lot of litter in certain areas of campus. I feel that some people may feel uncomfortable or even distracted by the litter on campus because I know that is how I feel whenever I see litter around my school. I just want to stop what I’m doing and clean everything!”- Jasmin Zermeno
“During the process of this internship we have learned several stages of marine debris. Also learning new methods on documenting what litter we have on campus. I’ve learned that my campus has odd cycles of cleanliness in certain areas of the school. I feel bad that the campus is dirty but it gives me the determination to help clean it up and make my school a cleaner place.”- Victoria Garcia
