Students at District 7 Elementary School crowded in a circle on their grassy playground Thursday and craned their necks, as they looked toward the crisp blue sky.

The students chanted “five, four, three, two, one,” as students from the Academy of Green Technology at Douglas Byrd High School launched a white helium-filled weather balloon loaded with cameras, equipment, and even a pink stuffed “llamacorn,” a cross between a llama and unicorn.

The awesome Douglas Byrd High School Academy of Green Tech Juniors helped Sherwood Park Elementary School students launch science experiments into near space.  The Sherwood Park Bear went 17.7 miles up before going on a spacewalk!  AoGT students serve as mission control for county schools and allow them to launch into space. Sherwood Park sent up some marshmallows and a wet sponge (ask the chem teacher or me for an explanation when you see us).  The payload returned to earth near Bentonville in some trees in dense woods behind a kind woman named Jamie’s home.  She let us cut down a small tree (not a normal practice) to get to the payload.

Douglas Byrd High School in Fayetteville is planting the seeds of the future. Students in the school’s Academy of Green Technology have embarked on a carbon sequestration study, which will monitor the impacts of trees on carbon emissions and provide environmental and educational benefits to the community.

Denise Renfro, the director of the Academy of Green Technology, said that her students wanted to develop a project that would address climate change and explore several aspects of carbon banks. Carbon banks are forests that are managed to absorb carbon dioxide from the air and ultimately reduce the effects of global warming.
According to North Carolina State University, the average tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide every year and sequester one ton of the greenhouse gas by the time it is 40 years old.
