What a year! In 2023, we engaged 831 students in classroom sessions, planted 7,675 California Melicgrass seeds, visited 13 schools within a 104.7 mile radius, presented to 10 grade levels, and built our cross-school team of 30 students.
Cross-School PSP Team Launch
2022-23 School Year Success!
This school year, we QUINTUPLED our impact! In addition to expanding the team to include eleven students from two different high schools, we have now reached 1,200 students and grown 19,000 Super Plant seeds! In total, we have presented in 17 schools and 35 classrooms. We are excited to see what next year holds!
This fall, we launched our new cross-school team! This amazing group of people brings together 30 high school students from six schools across the Bay Area who are all recruiting students and building teams at their school.
This Spring, Project Super Plants expanded our leadership team to include a new branch at Nueva. Our cross-school team now consists of eleven high schoolers working together to run classroom sessions and will allow us to have an even larger reach throughout the Bay Area.
Expanded Leadership Team
North Bay Science Discovery Day
Project Super Plants ran a booth at the North Bay Science Discovery Day in Santa Rosa! An incredibly exciting and inspiring day!
We engaged 1000 visitors and planted car Super Plants with 350 kids, growing 3000+ native California Melicgrass seeds.
Families learned about the science behind Super Plants and planted their own in compostable pots to transplant into home gardens.
New Leadership Team
Project Super Plants recruited a new leadership team this fall! Seven middle and high schoolers from across the Bay Area are working together to spread our project. We have now reached over 430 students and planted 9160 Super Plant seeds!
