The solution to the low recycling rates and the litter on the street, is to educate people on how, when, and what to recycle. In order to accomplish this, we intend to educate people through the creation of lesson plans for elementary, middle, and high school students. By creating the lesson plans and teaching the students more about the harms of plastic litter, recycling rates in Worcester could rise and reduce the amounts of improperly disposed of trash on the streets.

Electrical instability is one of the main issues that the modern electrical grid faces today. This instability affects a number of different sectors that rely on constant uninterruptable power to function. The current solution to this problem is the use of batteries which have a number of disadvantages that could be improved upon with the use of alternative energy storage systems. This project will advocate for the use of flywheels over batteries as a better solution to the problem of energy instability.
