On December 3rd, 2008, Alex, Astrid, and Rene Rivera gave the second presentation at Garfield Middle School(Youth Adelante. They first talked to the students about the problem we are getting into if we do not protect our environment. They also talked to the students about the solutions that there are to solve this big problem like recycling, planting trees, not throwing garbage on streets, etc. Furthermore, the children interacted with the presenters by asking questions and participating in activities. The presenters had the students build snow globes by using jam jars and other supplies. Although the presenters had some technical difficulties with the power point presentation, they were able to pull through and everything worked out just fine. The students were impressed because Alex graduated from that school.
