One of the activities was to build a solar-powered boat used to collect coastal trash near the school. The idea and the boat design came from students, and students also carried out the assembly. Teachers and BYD engineers provided guidance.

The school wants to build nine more boats with the help of the ZFEP money. Students will add an automatic trash collection system and a remote driving system in later phases of the project. Since these boats are solar powered, they do not emit any CO2 and do not leak oil.
