Energy, water, sustainability, air quality, and habitat conservation and restoration are among the most important issues facing our global community. Honeywell, in partnership with local environmental organizations, creates programs to inspire students to become environmental stewards within their community, and provides teachers with innovative teaching techniques to engage students in their local ecosystems.
Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education
Operating in partnership with the Maryland Department of Education, the Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education takes science and social studies teachers through an exploratory tour of their local ecosystems. Educators learn new teaching techniques and discover creative methods to integrate environmental science into their existing curriculum. Teachers participating in the Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education program will model lessons and teaching techniques that support each state’s Core Curriculum Content Standards and share ideas with professionals in the environmental field.
Adventures in Environmental Leadership
Honeywell Hometown Solutions® works in partnership with the Living Classrooms Foundation in Baltimore County to offer fourth and fifth grade students from Logan Elementary school the opportunity to participate in Adventures in Environmental Leadership. The students and teachers explore Baltimore’s watershed and investigate how their actions on land affect steams, creeks, rivers, and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay.
