With the implementation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Programs in Maryland schools, NSA has had the opportunity to partner with educators to support the growth of student activities and encourage young minds to gain an interest in STEM studies. For our first activity, we designed Challenge Questions that would teach young students about recycling.
The Federal Government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in this country. Every product that we use and then discard has the potential to become part of the waste stream and end up in landfills. For this reason, federally mandated pollution prevention laws require government employees to participate in recycling programs to the maximum extent possible. For this reason, and because it is just the right thing to do, NSA has been "going green" for over 25 years, implementing countless initiatives to recycle more and be environmentally friendly.
