Our Smithsonian Environmental Justice Scholars

In conjunction with Howard University our 6th-grade students completed the Smithsonian Science for Global Goals: Environmental Justice project where our scholars learned about the concerns of their community in order to communicate accurate, helpful, and trusted information about environmental justice.

The project featured 8 tasks that incorporated investigations and hands-on science that helped students discover, understand, and take action. Students were able to learn about how they interact with their environment;

research environmental justice throughout history;

learn about a specific environmental issue in their area and the causes of this problem;

Examine how different environments can make people more or less healthy.
