Environmental Outreach

Edison Intermediate School 6th grader Madeline Cortes delivered flyers, brochures, and other educational materials to Westfield Senior Citizens Housing on June 21 as part of an environmental outreach to share information about severe weather, extreme heat, wildfires, blizzards, and other natural hazards. 

The educational outreach was part of a 6th grade research project on Natural Hazard Awareness in science teacher Allison Friedman’s classes and also was shared with elementary school teachers for their units on weather.
