Which Sustainable Development Goals will your Monster work on?




Milene Fernandes - starting a new project in Bahia, Brazil. Details coming soon. 

" I hope everyone here is well and eternally motivated to guarantee the necessary human rights in every part of this planet, so beautiful. Gratitude to be in this group and back. The experience with everyone here was very important for us and especially for me it was very educational, it was motivating to teach and present the SDGs, in addition to building a fun monster and it was really also very challenging to communicate with other languages ​​and make people understand here in my country the word sustainability."

New Mexico 

Midge Nichelason/Lydia Dallas: grades 4 and 5 Gifted/Talent Pool Program School. Carlos Rey Elementary School. Albuquerque, New Mexico

Longitude/Latitude 35.0844 N, 106.6604 W HIGH/LOW Temperatures 27°F to 93°F WAY HOTTER THIS SUMMER!  Carlos Rey is a nice and fun school. It helps us learn a lot and to improve on math, reading and other subjects. We think it is a TOPS school which means we have a longer school year and day. We have a leadership council of students which gives out food to families in need. Last year we helped with a local animal shelter. We are: RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and SAFE!

Our Global ELEMENTAL Monster will be designed to control all of the elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air. This means it can help in MANY areas of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It will be the ultimate technological machine designed by the best thinkers and inventors around the world!
Water - it could purify water, create ice in polar areas to sustain habitats, Rain could be directed to areas affected by fires, to irrigate arid areas into usable farmland. Earth - controlling the weather so there is no drought, control earthquakes and prevent other natural disasters, growing trees for more oxygen. Air - to control wind to not spread fire and to get rid of pollution and smoke. Fire - to manage forests (along with water). Our Elemental Monster would be available to all people in all countries! Our only concern is that no one tries to take it over to make money and control other countries. If we can create such a monster, hopefully we could take care of the human side through the United Nations or some other global cooperative group.

Latitude: 35.170510N Longitude: 106.341150W -- Temperature: 15°F Lows - 86°F Highs
San Antonito STEM Magnet is located about 20 miles east of Albuquerque, NM, in the eastern foothills of the Manzano Mountains. We are a neighborhood magnet school where there is a strong sense of community. We are able to bring in many businesses and community members to work with students through Project Based Learning. The small, rural school enables our teachers and staff to create connections with our learners and their families. We have 3 large outdoor learning spaces, school gardens, composting area, trails, wooded areas, large playground, an observatory and telescopes, a Roadrunner Lab (makerspace) for exploration and creation, and a DigiLab (technology class). Our motto is: Wonder ~ Explore ~ Contribute. Together we make our world better. With that motto in mind, our Global STEM Monster will help people grow and obtain the food and nutrition they need.

Mrs. Darling (2nd grade)/Mrs. Wilde (2nd grade)/Mrs. Caudill (STEM), 2nd grade.  Buckeye Central Elementary, New Washington, Ohio, USA. Paired with Mrs. Kantzer, 6th grade Buckeye Central Middle School.
Longitude/Latitude: 40.9623 degrees North/ 82.8544 degrees West, high temperature is 86 degrees Fahrenheit and low temperature is 22 degrees Fahrenheit

Mrs. Darling’s class has very kind friends and classmates. We have 13 students in our class with 7 girls and 6 boys. Mrs. Wilde’s second grade class is a nice, friendly class to have around. They get to enjoy a new seat every day in their classroom. This class enjoys playing Quizlet to learn their vocabulary words for the week. They also really like to complete their Mad Minutes math facts every day and are working towards a Mad Minute party! This class has 14 students with 9 boys and 5 girls. We are a good school for kids because we have good rules, a good principal, wonderful teachers, and helping staff. 

If our monster used Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), he or she would make our town (or world) a better place to live by working on…
GOOD HEALTH. We think this goal is important because not feeling good means you can’t have fun or work.



Mrs. Lisa Davis, 2nd Grade, Abraham Depp Elementary School, Plain City, Ohio.
There are 822 students in our school, 23 students in our 2nd grade class, and seven 2nd grade homerooms within our school.

Latitude: 44° 40' 16.93" N -- Longitude: -103° 51' 7.74" W

We are the 3rd and 4th grade classes on a vertical team of 1st-4th. We are the only vertical team at our school. We have 41 students between the two classes. We live in the Geographic Center of the Nation in Belle Fourche, South Dakota, which has a population of about 6,000. Our campus is 1st through 4th grades with 5 of each grade level. We do not have school on Fridays and go to school from 8:00am-3:20pm

We enjoy things such as sports, building, games including video games, cards, and board games, learning new things, creating art, and academics. We live about an hour away from Mt. Rushmore and we are just at the north end of the Black Hills. We have 4 seasons. Fall is mild with temperatures ranging from 40*F to 70*F. Our leaves turn colors and fall off. Our first snow is usually at the end of October or early November. Winter is cold with temps ranging from -20*F to 40*F. We get snow quite often ranging from 1" to 24" at a time, but it usually melts within a few days. Spring is cool again much like fall. We have lots of baby animals born in our area in the spring. Our last snow of the year can come as late as mid May. Summers are mild until about August when it gets hot. Late spring and early summer is usually rainy and we get lots of hail. Hail can be tiny like pea gravel or big like baseballs. Our sustainable development goal is stopping world hunger.
