This was our final design for the Earthquake PBL.

Invention Convention (with Haley Kang)
Our environmental problem solves water pollution. We’re going to place our invention (The Solar Rod 5000) in polluted bodies of water (worldwide) such as Matanza-Riachulo river in Argentina, the Citarum River in Indonesia, and much more (hubpages.com). It picks up trash or recyclables, and we have another building that sorts these two. Our invention collects trash in the ocean and recycles as well. Our invention is a rod that is on a float. This rod has solar panels on it, so the sun can transfer energy through the rod. (This rod is controlled by another building.) This energy then activates the robot arms that is attached to the rod. The rod has a camera on top of it, so the building can control/move/look out for danger for the rod (ex. if there's danger, like powerful currents, then the building sends it back). The workers in the building move the robot arms and the rod to collect all trash or recyclables in the water. When the robot arms grab the trash, it transfers that trash to the container that is connected to the rod. The container has a rim, and when the trash reaches the rim, the building sends the rod back. There, the workers separate the trash from recyclables. After they are separated, we send the rod back to the water and start the cycle again.
This was our idea/sketch of The Solar Rod 5000.
We finished our invention and this is what it looks like.
