Global Issues Problem Solving - PP1 Results
Our two CmPS individuals received feedback from their first practice problem! We also start researching the next practice problem topic which is wearable technology.
FPS State Bowl and IC Prep
We go over the logistics of the trip to the State Bowl and the International Conference. Then, we read at the Community Problem Solving Score Sheet that has judge's comments. We discuss how we can improve the written report, addendum, scrapbook, and PSA for the State Bowl.
Evaluations & Critiques for Practice Problem 1
Yay! Congratulations to all 4 teams that participated in GIPS Practice Problem 1. One team placed third out of all Texas teams, and another Bellaire team got nearly a perfect score on the Step 1 (29/30).
We went over the judges critiques to learn how to do even better next round.
Combating Food Deserts + Food Waste
Our Community Problem solving project:
We will provide fresh food alternatives, like vegetables and fruits, for those living in food deserts. Not only will our project provide healthy produce for the 500,000 people living in Houston food deserts, but we will also decrease the amount of food loss and waste. Farmers and grocery stores inevitably waste food when customers reject certain items based on their imperfect appearances. We will take the healthy, fresh produce that would have been thrown away and bring them to our food markets.
