Celebration of Service Learning at TEA

We are empowering a new generation of creative problem solvers with a social conscience.

We appreciate the service work our students throughout the year for their communities and beyond.

Our students will be presenting their service projects to a public audience. We’d like to invite everyone to join us in this celebration of service learning. Our Pre-K through 8th-Grade students will be displaying their final products from semester-long projects. Products on display will include everything from Tahoe-area field guides to sustainable energy devices.

The high school students will be showing short documentary films (entirely self-produced) at their inaugural TEA Film Festival. Films to be shown include:


Public Art for the Greater Good: How can we contribute to the aesthetics of our shared community through public art?


Brain and Mind – Determinism and Choice in Human Cognition and Behavior: How does understanding the human mind and brain help us understand our lives / live more responsibly with meaning?


Natural Disaster Relief – What WE and TEA Can Do: What type of assistance would be most beneficial to support the disaster relief efforts in South Florida, in response to Hurricane Irma


Monterey Bay – Marine Life on the Edge: What makes Monterey Bay a unique ecosystem and what steps can we take to protect it?


Global Warming, Renewable Energy, and Iceland’s Glaciation How can we apply Iceland’s sustainability practices to our own community?
