The BCCP New Utrecht program visited the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden at the amazing Brooklyn Botanical Garden and it was such a beautiful day!
With all the crazy weather happening all around the world, affecting so many people’s lives daily, the New Utrecht students took to the streets to see if people REALLY know what is Global Warming.
If I could change the world, my main mission would be the environment; how to have a safer and cleaner world to live in. I would try to change the way people live and the things they could do in their daily lives to accomplish that. One example, would be to recycle, reduce, reuse. Recycling is very important because we are saving its resources and helping the environment and our communities by reusing things we use.
Another factor in the world that I would like to change is society. I feel society is very harsh and because of society’s high expectations on people you have many tragic issues such as bullying. Bullying should be taken very seriously because that things people say can really affect those who are being bullied in so many states like, emotionally mentally, physically, spiritually etc. You have cases like Amanda Todd who committed suicide because of bullying and people should start learning from all these tragedies.

When the students at New Utrecht HS have a stressful day at school, they don’t get mad. They just shake it out at after school!
Creating claymations was very fun and interesting. Students had no idea what a claymation was or ever heard of Gumby lol, the first claymation created for television.
