Altair Students Stop Pollution
Inspired by a Problem Based Learning unit, Altair students are on a mission to help the environment. First stop: Improve water quality and help the people and animals that depend on clean water sources. Check out their websites: StopPollutingIt.com and Pollution Busters
Openings are still available in several classes. Please contact us if you’re interested in a tour of the school.
