Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description Five 9th grade students from Hartford's Sports Science Academy worked an average of two hours each per week assisting DEP staff in the pollution prevention program in 1998. The interns designed posters to encourage reduction of office paper use, and helped with the Hartford Neighborhood Earth Day Celebration by preparing materials for distribution and assisting at the event itself. As part of the internship they learned about the different jobs at DEP and developed a display board about the Department for their school.

CT DEP also hired an intern to assist with research on remediation of a Hartford community garden site that has tested high for lead.
