We as a group of 16 high school students have found a way to leave a legacy on a totally different level. Team members: Sophie Alderete, Nathan Bray, Connor Campbell, Jody Chen, Adam Emerich, Jennifer Helmer, Jeremy Muniz, Emem Okan, Sagar Patel, Vanessa Pearl, Zach Post, Jessie Searles, Henry Werner, Austin Williams, Maddie Williams & Matt Williams.

Jessie Searles, Emem Okon, and Adam Emerich, from McKinney Boyd High School are in the process of redefining the living roof concept, and hope to prove to the next generation that one should not be deterred by their age. A team of 16 high school students are working on creating an alternative classroom space for their peers in order to enrich the overall learning experience. The team has been working with professionals throughout the Dallas area in order to transform this idea into a reality. The most important aspect of this project has been providing students with hands on experience into the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering for their future careers.
