P2 Outreach Program Pilot

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Office of Pollution Prevention staff developed interactive educational activities for 6-11 year old children, which were piloted at a day camp in Bridgeport in the summer of 1998. Staff developed a skit about reducing pollutants in Long Island Sound. DEP provided the skit dialogue, props and background information. Elementary age children at the Bridgeport day camp performed the skit for their camp mates. The children also played a game where they described pictures from magazines as either good or bad for the environment. Staff expanded upon or further explained the pictures. Both activities were successful, especially the skit. Staff further refined the activities for elementary age and older children for education events around the state.
