This past week was a big moment for our interns. Together we have learned a whole lot about the 3-Bin system and how it works, and gathered all the data to create a baseline for Oakland Tech.

FINALLY it was time to share.


Interns presented to over 100 OT faculty and staff this week, announcing the implementation of the 3-Bin System in all Oakland Tech Classrooms starting this December, as well as sharing the hard work they have done to make this project a reality. Faculty was welcomed into the meeting with a 3-Bin system educational brochure, made by Earth Team Interns themselves. Here is a peak!


The interns were allocated a mere 2-3 minutes to share LOADS of information. Pre-presentation there was a lot of nervousness about not being able to finish or touch on everything. Nonetheless, our interns did a fantastic job accommodating the situation and nailed the presentation! Here is what some of our interns had to say..

“We were concise, passionate and knowledgeable” –CoCo

“We went (my peers) straight to the point and got the message through quick and easy” –Suzanne

“It went better than I expected, I expected the teachers to just not pay attention but I saw a lot of them looking at the brochure” –Sierra

“Today went much better than I expected and we came off very passionate” –Nicole

The biggest take away of the day was announcing the role of Earth Team interns as faculty/staff representatives. During the presentation students sent out comment/question sheets as well as blog and more info email sign up sheets. This was the first of many steps interns will take to collaborate with school staff on the implementation of the 3-Bin System.
