Our 4 FA’s, Kyta, Mutske, AnoeskaB and Angela have contributed to this project by making a number of Objects to add to the game in order for the students to be able to place this into their game and hopefully help them choose the way to be “green”.

\:rah\: That is just SO ingenious! Those are some LUCKY schools! \:eek\: When I was going to public school in NEW YORK CITY of all the non-Green places we NEVER got exposure to what being Green was all about. The first I had ever heard of the concept was when the hybrids came out and we all of a sudden had brand new buses on the streets -- and the fares went up! \:P
