KARS - Kids Against Road Salt

The Star Academy Senior Class embarked on an action project self-named “Kids Against Road Salt” in September 2013 after signing up to take part in the WaterDocs @ School Programme, offering Grade 8 classes in Toronto a chance to create a documentary based on a social action project to advocate water conservation. Since taking the first exploratory steps into learning about water, the Senior Students built an online Social Media campaign that is sweeping across the globe, inspiring change in ice-melting habits in all those they connect with! Through this unique inquiry-based project, students have learned to become advocates for their environment while learning important skills about researching and backing up their opinions with facts.
