Minneapolis science teacher lands national grant

Minneapolis, Minnesota (AP) June 2010

A Minneapolis high school teacher is one of 10 from around the country to win a $4,000 grant for an environmental education project.

James Lorenz is a science teacher at Nawayee Center School in Minneapolis. He’s getting the grant from the National Environmental Education Foundation to implement a curriculum that aims to connect his American Indian students with their traditional teaching and attitudes toward the environment.

Course activities include plant and animal studies, speakers from Indian communities and outings to Rum River for hands-on learning projects.

The National Environmental Education Foundation is supported by The Weather Channel.
