A Safford K-8 teacher has been selected to attend Green Boot Camp, a workshop focused on environmental issues.

Brenda Dickason was selected by Honeywell to receive a scholarship for the five-day, interactive workshop on best practices for teaching energy, sustainability and environmental concepts.

Along with 70 other teachers from around the world, Dickason will participate in hands-on educational experiences, including designing and building a solar car and wind turbine, which will equip them with green and sustainable topics, methods, lessons and concepts to pass onto their students. She is the only Tucson-area teacher selected for the program.
