A group of children volunteer to clean empty plastic bottles from a shoreline.

Students identify a variety of problems in their school or classroom environment and create work teams that define jobs to address and solve those problems. Students design tools that can help their work teams solve the problems they identified and develop training materials that teach others how to use the tools and perform the jobs.
