Baltimore students showed off their projects about improving the environment Friday.
U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, spoke to the students at the Green Street Academy, a new city public middle and high school that encourages careers in the growing green economy.
“These children really get it, they really are interested, they’re curious. They’re learning technology and they’re learning a way of thinking that’s going to be critically important for their future and for America’s future,” Cardin said.
The school opened last September to sixth- and seventh-grade students. Each year, school officials will add a grade until the school accommodates grades six through 12.
