At “e” inc.’s Winter in the Rainforest Camp, kids will take on the role of “Rainforest Explorer” to answer these questions and more, all the while discovering what makes rainforests such special and unique ecosystems.

“e” inc. – the environment science learning and action center is a community-based non-profit whose mission is to create scientifically confident environmental citizens committed to understanding and protecting the Earth. “e” inc. brings its in-depth science investigation programs to low-income communities throughout Greater Boston and has succeeded in capturing the interest of children who face academic, social, and economic challenges. Our programs engage young people in hands-on science and, as their understanding grows, helps them build skills to make a difference. It is this particular coupling of academics with community involvement that helps our children make not just academic gains but social growth, as well.
