This year, the Roots & Shoots club organized the “Environmental Science Contest”, this competition is well-renowned by the participants for its high academic requirements.

Questions from easier portions was basic information from a Junior High Biology textbook. The harder questions required students to have extra knowledge of environmental science. The second part of the free-response questions, which not only tested the understanding of the test takers on theories, but also asked them to practically try to express their views of environmental protection through the models they made by hand.
