    Honeywell announced its selection of 70 middle-school teachers from around the world to receive scholarships to Green Boot Camp, a five-day, interactive workshop focused on best practices for teaching energy, sustainability and environmental concepts.

    Honeywell launched Green Boot Camp in 2009 as a regional program and, to date, 77 teachers have attended. This year, the camp goes global, welcoming teachers from the United States, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, England, India, Mexico, and The Netherlands.

    The workshop will take place July 16-20 in San Diego. Green Boot Camp is sponsored by Honeywell, and is part of a partnership with San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), the California Center for Sustainable Energy and the Urban Corps of San Diego County.

    "Green Boot Camp demonstrates our continuing commitment to pass on energy and sustainability knowledge to teachers in middle schools, which is often when students make choices about whether to pursue math and science educational paths," said Paul Orzeske, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. "We're excited to be holding the event in San Diego, a city that is recognized for a number of energy efficiency and sustainability initiatives, and with 700 clean technology companies in its backyard."

    During the week, the 70 teachers will participate in hands-on interactive educational experiences, including designing and building a solar house and wind turbine, which will equip them with green and sustainable topics, methods, lessons and concepts to pass onto their students.

    To provide a balance of classroom and hands-on training, workshops will take place at the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center, the California Center for Sustainable Energy and the Urban Corps of San Diego County.

    "SDG&E is proud to sponsor and host the Honeywell Green Boot Camp at our new Energy Innovation Center facility," said Ted Reguly, director of customer programs and assistance at SDG&E. "At SDG&E, sustainability and education are both essential to our business, and we are honored to have the opportunity to share best practices and insight about renewable energy and environmental stewardship with this select group of teachers."
