Honeywell selected 70 middle-school teachers from around the world to receive scholarships to Green Boot Camp – a five-day, interactive workshop focused on best practices for teaching energy, sustainability and environmental concepts. The teachers will participate in hands-on interactive educational experiences to equip them with green and sustainable topics, methods, lessons and concepts to pass onto their students.
Seventy seven teachers have attended Green Boot Camp since it was launched by Honeywell in 2009. The program is made possible through Honeywell Hometown Solutions in partnership with San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), the California Center for Sustainable Energy and the Urban Corps of San Diego County.
Originally designed as a regional program, this year the camp goes global, welcoming teachers from the United States, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, England, India, Mexico and The Netherlands. The workshop will take place July 16-20 in San Diego.
