25. Zakladni Skola Ekolog. Praktikum Uzel, Liberec, Czech Republic
GLOBE students who are part of the club called "Uzlici" at 25. Zakladni Skola, Ekolog. Praktikum Uzel in Liberec, Czech Republic, have already made a big impact on their community. Thanks to these GLOBE students, the town of Liberec, which is located in North Bohemia, now recycles batteries. GLOBE students made and decorated their own recycling bins as pictured to the left from plastic bottles, and provided them to stores throughout Liberec. They also arranged for a company to collect and recycle the batteries.
The GLOBE students in "Uzlici," pictured to the right at their weather station have been consistently collecting and reporting GLOBE data since September 1995, and are looking forward to getting their own World Wide Web connection soon. Tomas Lindner, a student at 25. Zakladni Skola, who is pictured to the left taking the pH of water, played an important role in Earth Day activities in Prague, the capitol city of the Czech Republic. He provided reporters information about GLOBE in the Czech Republic and about his school's involvement in GLOBE.
