Brooks Middle School Team Chosen as Finalist for the Nationwide "OurEcho Challenge"

A Brooks Middle School team is a finalist for EarthEcho International’s "OurEcho Challenge" and will have a chance to win the grand prize of $10,000!

The “OurEcho Challenge” is a STEM innovation competition that empowers U.S. middle school students to take a closer look at biodiversity in their communities. Students will identify threats to local ecosystems and then propose solutions to help preserve, protect, or repair those natural resources.

The Team “International Bird Hotel Developers” from Brooks Middle School are working to create an environment to spread awareness about birds and habitat loss. They are proposing to create a variety of innovative habitats on the grounds of Brooks Middle School to attract native, migratory bird species to the local area. Watch their video presentation here.

As one of ten finalist teams, the “International Bird Hotel Developers” will present their final projects during EarthEcho International’s Youth Leadership Summit in August and will have a chance to win up to $10,000. Meet the team by clicking the following link.
