The capstone at Science Leadership Academy allows students to showcase what it is that they have a passion for and how they want to do it. For me that happened to be finance. I’m glad I was able to teach the kids a very useful life lesson that I hope stays with them for the rest of their lives.
SLA at Beeber is home to many clubs, sports, extracurriculars, and other activities. Fitting to this theme of the community at SLA Beeber, I took on trying to establish the school’s gardening club since being stopped as a result of the pandemic. The purpose of my Capstone project was to revive the school’s gardening club and have it set up for the incoming class this fall and other students in the school. My plan for bringing back the school’s gardening club was to discuss with Ms. Sasso what needed to be done and planning stuff for next year. This was not my original plan and is actually the third thing I thought of doing, but I think it turned out better than I thought it would have. The actual club was never officially put into place this year, but I decided on organizing everything I figured would be needed to be prepared to start it up again next year. The Capstone project overall is a dense task and was tough to go into with no plan but after I just decided on something that I think would be useful and give back to the school, it was all straightforward from there. In the end, I do hope that my plans for the gardening club will be carried out and that a difference was made in putting in the work to restore it.
