RATA re-homes unwanted pet turtles (often the red-eared slider, a global invasive species), fundraises for NC conservation organizations with Molly's Turtle Soap, and operates a Raleigh based STEM Leadership Camp for middle schoolers. I also have a conservation pledge with nearly 1,000 signatures.
STEM Leadership Camp was an idea that began in seventh grade. I'd been to single subject STEM camps and wanted to integrate all STEM subjects into one week. I had no idea how difficult it would be to start a camp. It failed twice but in 2013 my camp finally opened. I have about 16 campers each year.
I sell turtle shaped soaps, sugar/salt scrub, and tub soak. Recipes require trial and error. My soaps cost $4, $1 covers material costs and I donate $3 (no pay for me). I've raised over $22,000. Customers like orange and lavender scents best. They're for sale in a few shops and at special events.
