Rooftop 8th graders were asked to create an educational and inspirational public service announcement (PSA) in art class, elaborating learning from Marcus Shelby: Green and Blue: Birth of the Cool study on sustainability and environmental conservation. The PSA requires stitching together images, researched facts, music, transitions and an ability to tell a compelling story. Students showed their passion and determination to use the power of one to change the world.

This film was shown at the KQED Science Youth Media Festival in 2012.
