For several years, Nature’s Academy has partnered with Manatee County Schools and the Chamber of Commerce in their ePIE initiative, or Partners In Education. The school system created the program to link businesses with the schools to meet learning goals and provide Manatee County school children with unique and often transformative learning experiences. Our work with ePIE continues to be one of our most satisfying community partnerships, allowing us to take our passion for science education and create exceptional opportunities for students. We are happy to announce our nomination for several Partners in Education Awards, but we won’t find out the recipients until the official ceremony in early September. We’ll keep you posted!
