Forty students from Turner Station in Dundalk, Maryland, experienced life as a botanist, biologist, lab technician, and chemist during Honeywell Adventures in Environmental Leadership. On a field trip last month to Masonville Cove Environmental Education Center in Baltimore, which was led by Living Classrooms Foundation, they dissected flowers, used a microscope as a lab technician, identified fish anatomy, and performed chemical experiments to show that humans can have negative impacts on the water.
Lorraine Warnick, Director of Masonville Cove Environmental Education Campus, said, “Working with Honeywell Adventures in Environmental Leadership, we seek to instill a sense of stewardship, and to inspire young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education.”
Honeywell Adventures in Environmental Leadership is a yearlong program run by Living Classrooms in Dundalk. During the school year, the program seeks to enhance academic achievement while creating environmental awareness and promoting community stewardship. The students also learn about the water cycle and how rain carries trash, car oil, brake dust, and other pollutants from the street into the waterways. Since 2009, almost 2,000 students have participated in Honeywell Adventures in Environmental Leadership.
Living Classrooms strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms.”
