On May 3rd, Interns presented to over 110 Tech Staff & Faculty for the last check in of the year. Here is what one of our interns had to say about the day!


This time the presentations were about the results of the 3-Bin system. There was 17% contamination in compost and 24% contamination in recycling. We found these numbers to be amazing, we expected the contamination to be much higher. We also presented the results of our student surveys. Showing staff that 75% of students were very satisfied/satisfied that the 3bin system was at Tech. In addition, 76% of students believe their classes are using the system extremely well/well, and 78% of students said having in class presentation were most beneficial method of teaching the 3bin system. We showed this to the staff acknowledge their importance in the success of the 3-Bin system.

This wasn’t our first time at a staff meeting. Normally everyone would be nervous to present in front of teachers but no one was nervous. When it was time to present we confidently stood in front of everyone and said our piece. All the teachers were glad to see actual results. It felt as if they were actually listening to us this time. I was expecting them to have many questions but there were very few. The questions were also very simple to answer now that we have the information.

My biggest take away from presenting to the staff is the amount of improvement that we have had. In the first staff meeting the teachers did not think too much of us, now they trust and believe in us which is an amazing feeling.
