Congratulations to Ms. Aniya De’Nae Arrington and her class mates for their completion of their program.
The SEDP is an environmental education and leadership development program. The students spend six-seven weeks of their summer at EPA Region 3 headquarters in Center City, Philadelphia, and on the campus of George Washington University, in Washington, D.C. and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. There, they are taught by a middle school science teacher and given topic lectures by EPA employees and local professionals. The students participate in hands-on learning activities, outdoor education and extended learning experiences (field trips) which supplement their in-class learning. The versatile format can be used as a model for after school, summer, and/or day camp programs. The students are from diverse racial, economic, and cultural backgrounds and range in age from 12-14.
