"e" inc.’s mission is to ensure that every young person in the Commonwealth becomes a confident, science-skilled, conservation citizen who uses science to understand and also protect the planet. We accomplish this through programs that pair the in-depth hands-on science of how all aspects of the planet 'works' with youth-led activities that allow young people to make a difference. We target our work to low-income children, teens, families, and the institutions serving them.
"e" inc. is a non-profit, that started in 2002, located in Boston, MA, committed to joining science literacy and civic engagement as the 2 pillars necessary for creating citizen conservationists. We engage urban children and teens in three area cities in 'science education and making a difference’ through a combination of in-school, after-school, and summer programs. At every location, teams of children receive 7-11 critical science lessons paired with an action program of short and long-term projects created by our kids using the science concept studied for the benefit of planet. We also run a popular environment film festival once a year.
