Every year for the past six years, the 2,300 students at La Mirada High School in Los Angeles County, Calif. celebrate an energy-themed National Environmental Education Week and Earth Day event. Science students display renewable energy and environmental projects while state agencies, including the California Coastal Commission. The school choir and jazz band perform and students play a variety of eco-themed games.
La Mirada Spanish teacher Norma Williamson coordinates the event. She is passionate about environmental education and uses it to help her students understand the environment through hands-on learning.
