EPA and NASA administrators to extend environmental and Earth science agreement

WASHINGTON U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden today stressed the importance of science and engineering education at the Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science (MS) 2. The administrators chose the Howard University Middle School to underscore the importance of promoting math and sciences among the next generation of leaders. The administrators also signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to foster cooperation between the two agencies in environmental and Earth sciences and applications. As two science leaders in government, both administrators challenged the students to continue a pursuit of science and excellence.

"Our health and the health of our environment depend on continuous scientific exploration and innovation. EPA is proud to work with NASA to engage and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers who will carry our work forward," said Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. "America's young people are stepping up in this effort because they know what's at stake now and in the future, and they see the opportunities for the next great, game-changing discovery that will improve their lives and the lives of others."

"Our agencies have a remarkable opportunity to tackle a variety of environmental issues together," said Administrator Bolden. "Involving students in Earth science and climate research at an early age will encourage a stronger sense of stewardship toward our home planet."

The MOA signed today promotes renewed efforts of collaboration between EPA and NASA to improve environmental and Earth science research, technology, environmental management, and the application of Earth science data, models and technology in environmental decision-making. Areas of applied research and applications expected to benefit from this partnership include climate change, air quality, and water. The re-invigorated partnership focuses on science leadership to motivate continued exploration, innovation and protection of our home planet.
