RMS Students Propose  Ways To Make Pickup and Drop-off More Eco-friendly.  
We are RMS students, and we made a project in science to help reduce global warming. Our project was based off of our concerns about the energy inefficiency of RMS's pick-up and drop-off system. The video links to our project and it is about rules and suggestions that we think would help fix this problem while also decreasing traffic in the system. 
If you have any more questions, please contact Jennifer Lo or Tanvi Bedekar
