Last week, science teacher Sara Howe’s class started building their ecobottles for biology. Week-to-week the “B&W” will follow up of one group chosen from Howes’ third period and how they progress throughout the project. The group chosen includes sophomores Jordan Durst, Sydney Hughes, Melinda Nguyen and Mary Deluna.

Ecobottles are structures made out of two-liter bottles with the goal of the project to make an ecosystem by combining an aquatic section, a decomposition section and a terrestrial section.
