Members of the Creekside High School Environmental Club recently participated in a local beach clean up project.
Nineteen students from the Engineering Academy volunteered with St. Johns Housing Partnership Saturday, September 25 to build an accessibility ramp at the home of a St. Johns County resident. The project started at 8am and was finished at 2pm. It was the 20th ramp built by the Engineering Academy over the past 11 years. Students used skills learned in their academy such as teamwork and measuring and put into practice their OSHA safety certifications. They also learned how to use power tools such as the circular saw, the reciprocating saw, the rafter square and the pneumatic framing nailer.
You can donate to future ramp build projects through SJHP.org.

Spring of 2021 had students in Creekside’s Academy of Environmental Sciences busy working on the Uniquely Florida StoryMap competition with the organization ESRI, The University of Central Florida and CitizenScience GIS.
Each student group had to choose a topic of interest that was “Uniquely Florida”, provide research, map geographic findings, and present research in the form of a StoryMap using GIS software.
Students in the Academy of Environmental Sciences placed top in the state of Florida for their StoryMap projects using Geographic Information System software from their Academy coursework. Go Knights!
