MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 70 gifted and talented students, grades 6-10, worked alongside top scientists and researchers collecting and analyzing data on the health of the Chesapeake Bay. The two week summer science and environmental program ran July 6 to July 19 and was hosted by Honeywell (NYSE: HON) at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science's Horn Point Laboratory in Cambridge, Maryland.

Maryland's gifted and talented students researching on environmental issues and ways to solve them during Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education at the Horn Point laboratory, Maryland.

The Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education (HIEE) started in 2010 and is coordinated through the Maryland State Department of Education's Gifted and Talented Summer Center. The program uses the Investigating and Evaluating Environmental Issues and Actions (IEEIA) method, which operates on the belief that students learn best by choosing subjects of interest and fully immersing themselves into that subject matter.

Maryland Delegate Adelaide "Addie" Eckhart, a longtime advocate for education and the environment, praised the 73 students and 15 teachers for their active participation in local conservation efforts. "The Chesapeake Bay is an integral part of our community's well being, and we thank Honeywell for their ongoing commitment to our students, teachers and community," she said.

"By engaging students in the issues and sciences that are of critical importance to our state, the Honeywell Institute for Ecosystems Education program ensures that we have both local and global stewards to safeguard our environment for years to come," she added.
