Implemented project Educating Peers on Environmentally Responsible Vehicle Maintenance

Dayspring Christian Academy, Greeley, Colorado, USA

Oil being poured into a funnel into a vehicle

Austin Cecil, Talon Fusco, Edward Race, and Arthur Race from Dayspring Christian Academy were concerned about the negative effects our vehicles can have on our watershed. That’s why they decided to educate their peers on proper vehicle maintenance and how to properly dispose of certain materials. This team educated sophomores through classroom presentations at their school on how to appropriately perform an oil change on their vehicles, change consumable items, and dispose of the byproduct with minimal effects to their watershed. An educational video was created along with handouts summarizing the information they reviewed. This team’s efforts contribute to Target 12.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
