UTPB STEM Academy Going Green

The University of Texas of the Permian Basin STEM Academy is going green.

Students decided to implement a recycling program on campus.

They were split into groups and for several weeks they worked on a design idea.

Students then campaigned their design and the school voted on it.

The winner was the Tardis Recycling Station.

The station was unveiled on Friday.

School officials say recycling and impacting the earth wasn't the only thing students learned about.

It took three days to build the Tardis.

It's made out of wood, doesn't use electricity and the windows are made out of plexi-glass.
