Environmental Protection Agency - Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) serves to protect human health and the environment. EPA consistently provides students hands-on learning experiences by bringing fairs, campaigns and literature directly related to the school community and beyond. For instance, students have experienced manipulating model lungs to see the impact that smoking and unhealthy air have on the body. Additionally, MAJ students participated in the Air Quality Flag Program to make teachers, students and members of the community aware of the local air quality conditions and can take protective measures to reduce exposure to air pollution.
National Park Trust –National Park Trust is a land conservancy initiative dedicated exclusively to America’s parklands, wildlife, scenic wonders and historic monuments. MAJ students take fieldtrips to Sweetwater Creek Park to conduct research, as well as visit the Chattahoochee Nature Center, MLK Center, Stone Mountain and several other parks. These educational fieldtrips provide students additional hands-on interactions with the various ecosystems, animal/plant habitats and industry experts.
