Honeywell hosted its fifth annual Green Boot Camp this week in San Diego. The event brought together 70 middle-school teachers from 10 countries and turns them into students, where they learn about sustainability, energy efficiency and renewable technologies.
In addition to providing curriculum for the classroom, Green Boot Camp gives teachers the tools to inspire their students to be more environmentally conscious, and heighten their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
Green Boot Camp is sponsored by Honeywell and was created as part of an environmental initiative of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s global corporate citizenship initiative. Hometown Solutions focuses on five areas of vital importance: science and math education; family safety and security; housing and shelter; humanitarian relief; and habitat and conservation.
