DEP Awards Spectrum Charter School
April 23, 2013
On Earth Day, Spectrum Charter School was awarded a PA Department of Environmental Protection Education Grant by Governor Corbett. These funds will be used to teach students about watersheds and related fields in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We will be purchasing rain barrels, seeds, gardening tools, mini greenhouses, and water conservation books.
Also, in relationship to this grant, Spectrum will be partnering with the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN) Scholastic Outreach Program who will provide presentations and hands on watershed activities.
