S.T.O. stands for Save The Ocean. Grace DeMato, Madeline Thumser and Arwen Yount are working to help save the ocean from pollution. We are working on an invention called, The Sea Saver. It is a floating platform that goes into the ocean. It has a spinning paddle that sucks the polluted water. The water goes under the main floor into a filter. The filter cleans the water then another spinning paddle pushes the water into the ocean.

We thought of S.T.O. after doing a science experiment called Save Fred the Fish from Pollution. Grace, Arwen and I had to save him and we failed to save him. Luckily, he was made out of a sponge.

The Sea Saver is our first invention. We need The Sea Saver most in a place in Africa. There is a town that survives on a river and there's so much trash and toxins that lots of people are getting sick. Their water is so polluted that there’s mercury in it.
