Hi, I'm Stone Platner. I'm currently a Life Scout and the Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 232, Ramstein, Germany.  To become an Eagle Scout, I need to complete an Eagle Scout Service Project (you can see the guidelines below, if you're interested).  For my project, I have chosen to build an Outdoor Classroom at Ramstein Intermediate School.

I've already planned the project, and my proposal was recently approved by our local District/Council.  The estimated costs are just under $3000 (for materials and equipment rental fees).  All labor will be donated by local Scouts, Scouters and Eagles living in this area.

FYI, for those of you who don't live here - Ramstein Intermediate School is run by the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) system.  It is one of 5 schools that serves 3rd through 5th grade military dependents in the Kaiserslautern area of Germany. Currently there are 900-1,000 students at Ramstein Intermediate, and the Outdoor Classroom would be utilized by all of them.  Recent studies indicate that Outdoor Classrooms help students retain information and promote learning, and the opportunity of those benefits would extend to all of those students (see the studies here for more information on that: Outdoor Classrooms)

Thank you in advance for your contributions!  Be sure to check back often to see my progress!

Yours in Cheerful Scouting,

Stone

Eagle Scout Requirement #5:

While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. (The project must benefit an organization other than Boy Scouting.) The project plan must be approved by the organization benefiting from the effort, your Scoutmaster and troop committee, and the council or district before you start. You must use the Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook, BSA publication No. 512-927, in meeting this requirement.
